Kodi Lee, a blind, autistic man with a stunningly beautiful voice and killer piano skills, won America’s Got Talent Thursday night in a story conclusion proving what pro-lifers hae always known: that all lives are precious.

Lee’s mother said her 23-year-old son, who was born both blind and autistic, found his love of music at an early age, telling the judges during her son’s televised audition that music “saved his life.”

“We found out he loved music really early on,” Tina Lee explained. “He listened and his eyes just went huge. He started singing and I was just in tears because that’s when I realized, oh my gosh, he’s an entertainer!”

“Through music and performing, he was able to withstand living in this world, because when you’re autistic, it’s really hard to do what everybody else does,” she added. “It actually has saved his life, playing music.”

Before each performance throughout the show, Tina Lee walked her son to his piano and encouraged him before turning him loose to wow the judges, the audience and, ultimately, the world. After earning AGT judge Gabrielle Union’s Golden Buzzer during his first audition, Lee went on to give a string of show-stopping performances with nothing more that his piano and his voice, and on Thursday beat out the Detroit Youth Choir to take home the show’s $1 million prize and a 3-day headlining show at the Paris Theater in Las Vegas.
