Kodi Lee is a savant and has a photographic memory. He can remember music easily after hearing a song just one time. This even includes songs sung in other languages. This will come in handy as he prepares to sing his show in Las Vegas in November.

Kodi Lee has won the one million dollar prize with his amazing singing skills. When asked what he would do with the money, he told “America’s Got Talent” host Terry Crews: “I will buy lots of grand pianos in every color.”

Here is Kodi Lee singing along with the immortal Leona Lewis. Together they performed “You Are The Reason.” His warm, gentle tones melt so perfectly with her agile voice. Congrats Kodi!
