America’s Got Talent started its 14th season Tuesday night, and there was a performance which had all the judges in tears and on their feet! Kodi Lee performed on the talent show, he came on stage with his mother, Tina Lee. His performance left everybody in tears of joy.
His mother said that they discovered that Kodi loved music from very young age. And also she told the crowd:
He was able to live in this world through music and performing, because when someone is suffering from autism it is very difficult for them to express themselves and do what everybody else does. Music saved Kodi’s life, and he is an entertainer from a very young age.
According to Kodi’s Official Website:
Kodi Lee is 22 years old, he is a n autistic and blind musical prodigious savant. He is one of the 25 people in the world, which have these amazing abilities. His gift is hiding in his passion for all types and forms of music, pitch perfect and his musical expression as well. Kodi’ has an audio photographic memory, in which he is able to perform a song after he hears it just one time. What an amazing gift, but his prowess and musical expression get on fop of that.
Kodi was born with optic nerve hypoplasia, and he survived a life-saving surgery when he only had 5 years old, and after a while he was diagnosed with autism, but that didn’t stop him from casing and reaching for his dreams.
Kodi’s dream is to become a famous rock star, and to perform in front of thousands of fans. That is why the Talent Show was a great opportunity for him, and the crowd loved him and his performance!
Judge Howie Mandell said:
You are amazing, not only that everybody felt the authenticity of what you did, but also you are the greatest inspiration I’ve ever seen, and a great talent.
Hough said in tears:
I am aware that everybody needs a voice and an expression, I can feel what you feel in your heart, I can feel your passion, and your performance tonight, blew everybody away.
