“America’s Got Talent” handed out its first golden buzzer to a talented pianist who also happens to be blind and autistic, and the guy has been crushing performances for some time.
Gabrielle Union awarded the prestigious honor to 22-year-old Kodi Lee, who was accompanied onstage by his mother, Tina, for a pep talk before his performance.
“I realized he’s an entertainer. Through music and performing, he was able to withstand living in this world because when you’re autistic, it’s really hard to do what everybody else does. It actually has saved his life playing music,” Tina told the judges.
Kodi performed a cover of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You,” and there was hardly a dry eye in the house afterwards after shocking the judges with his piano and singing skills.
Simon Cowell even called the performance, “extraordinary.”
Not only has Kodi been killing it at “AGT,” but there are tons of videos of the guy blowing audiences away on social media as he showcases the talent that may win him the life-changing $1 million!
