Deets: Showcasing America’s Got Talent as the world’s premiere variety show, Kodi Lee will headline the Las Vegas stage with guest Season 14 finalists Detroit Youth Choir, comedian Ryan Niemiller, dance group V. Unbeatable and violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa.
Following another extraordinary season on NBC at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, America’s Got Talent named singer Kodi Lee the winner of the sensational Season 14. As part of his grand prize, Lee will headline his own winner’s show, an exclusive engagement known as America’s Got Talent Live, to be held in Las Vegas Nov. 7 - 10 in the Paris Theater at Paris Las Vegas. The starring role in America’s Got Talent Live in Las Vegas is in addition to the million-dollars Lee won during the exciting live Season 14 finale.
Since first stepping on the stage, Lee captivated viewers with his talent, poise and skill. His initial audition performance of Donny Hathaway’s “A Song for You” revealed his gift to the world and earned a Golden Buzzer from judge Gabrielle Union. That auditio clip is the show’s most viewed video clip this season with 439.3 million combined total views across Facebook, Twitter & YouTube.
Lee was born with optic nerve hypoplasia that rendered him legally blind at an early age. He is also autistic and suffers from Addison's Disease, which is a life-threatening disorder that can be fatal if not monitored. Throughout his life, the one thing that stayed constant is his connection to music and his amazing ability to retain, understand and express himself through song. He taught himself to play the piano and performs with pure emotion and astonishing skill. His goal in life is to share his music with the world and to make people happy.
Lee performs locally near his Lake Elsinore, Calif., home at a variety of venues, including local restaurants, wineries, and music events around town. His musical repertoire ranges from rock and jazz, to R&B and pop. He has mastered classics such as Bach, Chopin, Mozart and others. He also recently picked up tap dancing and is one of only a few that can tap dance and sing simultaneously.
