22 year old singer Kodi Lee made it to the final of America's Got Talent and gave a Golden Buzzer worthy performance alongside three-time Grammy-Award winning artist Leona Lewis.

Kodi, who is autistic and blind, blew audiences away week after week with his incredible singing and piano playing talents.

Kodi teamed up with Leona Lewis to perform a duet of her track 'You Are the Reason', a song she previously recorded with Calum Scott - and it wasn't long after their emotional performance that Kodi was crowned the winner of AGT.

Kodi was born with optic nerve hypoplasia, a visual disorder, and had to undergo life-saving surgery aged just five.

He was later diagnosed with autism, but he has still pursued his dream of becoming a successful musician.
