Kodi Lee AGT Live Show
In his video package, his mom talks about learning he was blind at 3 months. Not soon after, he was diagnosed as autistic. Music was the thing that made him really happy. Kodi is Gabrielle’s Golden Buzzer. His audition has had almost half a million views online. His mom sits him at the piano and makes sure he’s ok before Kodi performs “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” Oh boy.
This performance really pulls at the heartstrings. He doesn’t have a great voice–he’s a better piano player. But his delivery is moving nonetheless. No chance Kodi won’t advance to the next round. He could win the whole thing. Gabrielle says, “You changed the world…we have to stop putting limits on our children.” Simon says, “You continually amaze me. We are nothing without people like you.” Paul Simon gave special permission for Kodi to sing the song. However, it’s not true that the song is hardly sung on singing shows.

Who is Kodi?
Kodi Lee is the first born child to Tina and Eric Lee. He is a 22-year old blind and autistic musical prodigious savant. He is one of only approximately 25 in the world today who possess his extraordinary abilities. Kodi's amazing gift lies within his musical expression, perfect pitch, and passion for all forms of music. Kodi has an audio photographic memory, in which he can recall music he hears after just one listen. An unbelievable gift in itself, but his musical expression and prowess top even that.
He has been performing his singing and piano expertise all across the globe for many years. He currently performs locally at a variety of venues including local restaurants, wineries, and music events all around town. Recently he was invited to perform at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. His musical repertoire ranges from rock to jazz, to R & B, and pop. Plus his mastery of the classics such as Bach, Chopin, Mozart and the list goes on. He literally has a library of songs in his mind that would rival any jukebox. But he doesn’t stop there. He recently has picked up tap dancing and he continues to amaze with his musical expression through dance and vocalization.
Kodi’s story, his inspirational determination, and indomitable spirit to overcome all obstacles have been featured in Orange County Register, LA Times, numerous broadcast television features and documentaries. He also shares his gift to help bring awareness to autism and many other charitable organizations.
Born with optic nerve hypoplasia, surviving a life-saving surgery at 5 days old, and being diagnosed with autism at an early age has never stopped Kodi from reaching for his dreams. Kodi continues to pursue his musical career and his dream is to be a “rock star” performing for thousands of fans. Any opportunity Kodi has to perform is a good day for him, and the bigger more energetic the audience, the more he loves to shine.
He shares on his facebook page:
" I hope you guys can come hang out with the Unstoppables tomorrow…they are all amazing and inspirational! I really hope you can come because Live Shows for America’s Got Talent will be starting in August so I won’t have time to perform as much as usual around town."

Matthew Williams The fact that Paul Simon allowed him to sing a song that he wouldn’t want most singers to sing and made that decision within 30 minutes just shows how much this amazing musician deserves to win the show! I was chanting right along with the audience when he finished singing! Kodi for the win!
Jeff Schwartz When Simon said Paul Simon gave his permission because he saw Kodis audition, i was floored. Thank you Paul, and thank you Kodi for being an inspiration and an amazing talent. Paul Simon and Kodi now need to perform this together on the finale. love Kodi Lee AGT Live Show performance
Sarah Espada I roll my eyes everytime a singer comes out however everytime Kodi comes out I cannot wait to hear him sing. His mom is amazing for allowing America and the world his hear voice and hear his talent. And thanks to Paul Simmon for allowing Kodi to use his song tonight! He did an amazing job and should be the winner to this season. Keep up the awesome job Kodi, keep showing and teaching the world that there is no limitation to be an inspiration!
Briana Russell Just give him the Million right now, this is your winner! He had me in tears the first time and I bawled again this time. And he was so cute at the end saying he was thankful for the support and that he loved us all. And I love how his mother respects him enough to let him answer on his own. I just love him!!
