Kodi Lee cannot see but he has the voice of an angel. Watch as he wows the crowd during his America’s Got Talent audition with a performance that moved everyone and had some of the judges in tears.
Kodi, who is 22-years-old was born with optic nerve hypoplasia and is both blind and autistic. He is also a prodigious savant which is a syndrome that occurs most often in autistic patients. It is a rare disorder where mentally disabled individuals have incredible abilities in particular fields like music.
Kodi is one of the most gifted musicians you will ever hear since there are less than 25 people in the world with similar genius abilities.
Surviving a lifesaving surgery at 5-days-old, and being diagnosed with autism at an early age has not stopped Kodi from pursuing his love and passion for music.
