Kodi’s entrance up the stage was largely unremarkable as he was accompanied by his mother, Tina Lee. But while some people were a bit confused about his movements, it was soon explained by Tina who revealed that Kodi is blind and has autism. She shared that music saved Kodi’s life as it was something that he really loved to do. Upon hearing her child sing, she claimed to have known that he would become a performer.

Tina gave Kodi some pep talk before the young man began playing the piano – and everyone was just so shocked to hear his voice. Kodi impressed everyone with a flawless cover of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song For You.”
