The 30-year-old Ohio native melted hearts as she shared her moving story about her ongoing cancer battle before she went on to perform a powerful original song titled It’s Okay.
Nightbirde – real name Jane Marczewski – revealed in the audition that she had ‘cancer in my lungs, in my spine and in my liver.’
The singer then stated about her cancer: ‘I have a 2% chance of survival but 2% is not 0%; 2% is something and I wish people knew how amazing it is.’
In an interview with NBC4i.com, Nightbirde stated about her health: ‘Physically, I’m doing really well. Again, for me, it’s just like miracle after miracle after miracle.
‘I just finished up some treatments a week ago and the doctors are anticipating that it’s going to take care of everything that was left over.’
She continued: ‘We won’t be able to test — it’s too early to really check. It’ll be a few more months until we can go back in and see what’s going on. But I’m expecting good news, I really am.’
Nightbirde, who has had cancer three times in her life, also shared her shock about the reaction to her audition as she continued: ‘I’m completely blown away, overwhelmed, speechless.
‘It’s going to take me a long time to even comprehend what happened. [It’s] so amazing.’
