Singer-songwriter Jane Marczewski, also known as Nightbirde, revealed that she will no longer participate in the reality talent show America's Got Talent due to health concerns.

After her health "took a turn for the worse," the 30-year-old performer announced on social media that she will now focus on her cancer battle. She said her treatment is "demanding all of [her] energy and attention."

"Sharing my heart with the world on AGT has been an honor and a dream come true. My point of view this summer has been astounding. What a miracle that the pain I've walked through can be reworked into a beauty that makes people all over the world open their eyes wider," Marczewski wrote in her Instagram account.

"I am so sad to announce that I won't be able to continue forward on this season of AGT. Life doesn't always give breaks to those that deserve it – but we knew that already," she added.

Marczewski also expressed gratitude to her admirers for their support and promised that she would get better soon.

Marczewski became famous after her audition for America's Got Talent went viral on social media. Her touching performance of her original song "It's Okay," which she wrote about her personal struggles with an aggressive form of cancer in her lungs, liver, and spine, moved both judges and audiences from all around the world.

"It's important to know that everyone knows I'm so much more than the bad things that happen to me. You can't wait until life isn't hard anymore before you decide to be happy," Marczewski said. Since its premiere on June 9, 2021, the YouTube clip of "It's Okay" has had over 30 million views.

AGT judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Howie Mandel all gave her a standing ovation for her performance.

Cowell founded AGT, a talent show competition located in the United States, in 2005. Terry Crews hosts the show, which is presently in its 16th season.

Friends and fans have shown their support on social media.

"Our hearts and prayers go out to her and her family," wrote AGT judge Howie Mandel on Twitter.

"Sending you love and prayers!" seconded former "Bachelorette" contestant Hannah Brown. "What an inspiration you are to us all."

AGT's official Instagram account also chimed into Nightbide's Instagram post, writing: "We're keeping you in our thoughts for a full recovery!"
