After receiving calls from the show's talent scouts for the past four years, singer-songwriter Alex Boye will finally appear on NBC's "America's Got Talent" Tuesday night.

"I want to expand my reach," Boye told the Deseret News in an email. "Any opportunity as an artist to get on national TV where millions of people are watching at the same time opens up many more opportunities that you may not otherwise get."

In a clip promoting the show, Alex Boye can be seen performing with the band Changing Lanes Experience, and it appears that one of the performers becomes injured.

In a Facebook post published June 19, Boye said the performance "was so hot, it actually sent me to the hospital."

Boye wasn't able to comment on why he visited the hospital, but when asked if he thought he made a good impression on judges, Boye wrote, "My plan was to perform in a way that would not easily be forgotten!"

The winner of the show receives $1 million and a chance to headline a show on the Las Vegas strip. The show airs at 8/7 c on June 23.

Boye, who has become known his Africanized covers of songs like "Let It Go" and "Shake It Off," is a former member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. He will join the choir for its Atlantic Coast tour from June 24 to July 7, 2015, according to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s website.
