Singer Thomas Wells — known for competing talent shows including “X-Factor,” “America’s Got Talent” and “The Voice” — died in a gruesome accident at a tire factory earlier this month, a report said Friday.

The 46-year-old was working at the manufacturing plant in Oklahoma when he got caught in an automatic conveyor belt, which did not stop, his wife Jessica Wells told TMZ. He died on Nov. 13 at a Texas hospital, according to his obituary.

The father of three showcased his pipes on a series of reality TV shows after teaching himself how to play instruments by ear as a child, the obit said.

“Thomas had an amazing voice and loved singing hymns as well as contemporary music,” the obituary reads. “He always had a smile and loved to joke and give people a hard time. He was a great entertainer and always became the center of attention.”

Wells’ wife, Jessica, revealed Thomas was caught in a conveyor belt and later died at a hospital on Nov. 13.

On Thanksgiving, Jessica, his wife of 17 years, recorded an emotional video from his gravesite about his rapid deterioration.

“It was the worst day of my life because I lost my husband, but the best day of my life because God told me he was home,” Jessica said in the video, posted to Facebook on Friday.

“I know one hundred and million percent that Thomas is up there waiting for me.”
