Ray Singleton On America’s Got Talent
In July 2021, Ray Singleton took it to America’s Got Talent stage to channel his love for his wife Roslyn. He sang Andy Grammer’s “I Am Yours” from his 2019 album Naive, and Roslyn broke into tears.
It seems that Ray’s wife battled brain cancer, and he had always been there fighting alongside her. If you want to know more about it, do check their interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The two then went on to tie the knot in November 2018.
About Roslyn’s cancer: She won the battle with her first cancer back in 2013. However, a second tumor was discovered in 2019. Even a week before Ray’s audition was featured on AGT in July 2021, Roslyn was hospitalized because of it.
