The Singletons’ story came to light after Ray posted a viral video of himself singing to Roslyn as she prepared to go in for surgery to fight the cancer. The clip led to an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Ray later competed on Season 16 of America’s Got Talent.
During his audition, Ray brought Roslyn out to meet the judging panel and sang a version of Andy Grammer’s “I Am Yours” to her. “Actually, the reason I’m here is because of my wife,” he told Simon Cowell and the judges. “She’s a U.S. Navy veteran. She is also a brain cancer survivor. And tonight, I am very happy to announce she is cancer free.”
Offstage, a stagehand handed Roslyn a tissue as she teared up. Ray cried as well. “I’ve been crying since he started,” Roslyn said about Ray’s audition. “He’s been practicing every day. I’ve never heard him sing so good.”
“You just love each other so much,” said Simon. “I can see that.” Ray received 4 yeses from the judges, but was cut ahead of the quarter-final round.
