Kodi Lee, winner of America’s Got Talent Season 14, is a 24-year old blind and autistic musical prodigious savant. He is one of only approximately 25 people in the world today who possess these extraordinary abilities. Kodi’s amazing gift lies within his musical expression, perfect pitch, and passion for all forms of music. His audio photographic memory gives him the ability to recall music he hears after only one listen. 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 millions of fans. Any opportunity Kodi has to perform is a good day for him. The BIGGER more energetic the audience, the more he loves to shine.
Kodi currently performs at a variety of events including charity galas, wineries and corporate events around the world. 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. Additionally, 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 currently is an amazing tap dancer 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, Los Angeles Times, numerous broadcast television features and documentaries. He also shares his gift to help bring awareness to autism and many other charitable organizations.
