Our Favorite Stars This Week: 'America’s Got Talent's' Kodi Lee & Gabrielle Union
If you haven't seen breakout star Kodi Lee's "America's Got Talent" audition that has now gone viral, stop what you're doing and go watch the video. Warning: There will be tears — grab some tissues before you press play.
Kodi Lee is blind and autistic, and his sweet mother Tina said that music has saved his life. Once Kodi sat down at the piano and began to sing, his soulful voice blew the audience away.
After watching Kodi's “extraordinary” performance (a direct quote from Simon Cowell), the judges continued to shower the young artist with praise. It was new judge Gabrielle Union who connected with Kodi and Tina on a deeper level, since she is a new mom to baby Kaavia. “You just want to give your kids the moon, the stars, and the rainbows,” Gabrielle said, “and tonight I'm going to give you something special.”
And she did! Gabrielle hit the Golden Buzzer, sending Kodi straight to the "AGT" live shows and changing his life forever. But as Gabrielle said to Kodi, “You just changed the world.”
We can't wait to see what comes next from Kodi on "America's Got Talent." Until then, we will be watching his audition video on repeat and feeling all the feels.
