Boyd's death comes one year after he and his mother were involved in a serious auto accident, in which their vehicle ran off the right side of the road and struck a tree.

Boyd captivated audiences with his booming voice and quickly became a fan-favorite while competing on America's Got Talent back in 2008.

Boyd opened up about the accident in an interview with Southeast Missourian earlier this year. "I shattered a lot of bones, and shattered my hip, which has left me nearly unable to use that leg for now", he told the outlet in February.
