There wasn’t a dry eye in the house after Kodi Lee took the stage last night (5/28) on the “America’s Got Talent” premiere.
Kodi is blind and autistic and it was obvious many were nervous for his performance. His mom Tina walked the young man on stage and explained that music is how he tolerates the outside world.
Kodi opted to sing the Donny Hathaway song “A Song for You” and absolutely knocked it out of the park. But not only did he vocally represent, he also played the piano for the tune. The crowd got to their feet at the end of the song, the judges did too and then freshman judge Gabrielle Union hit the Golden Buzzer. That sent Kodi straight to the live shows!
We’ll see more of the extraordinary talent later in the season. Cannot wait!
