  • Kodi Lee, 22, shocked the judges of America's Got Talent with a heartwarming performance.
  • Lee is autistic and blind, but discovered a passion for music "very early on," according to his mother.
  • Gabrielle Union hit her Golden Buzzer, meaning Lee will advance to the live shows.

Season 14 of America's Got Talent premiered last night—and judge Gabrielle Union has already hit her Golden Buzzer for a very talented contestant, whose performance left the entire audience in tears.

Kodi Lee, 22, stepped onto the AGT stage with a cane, assisted by his mother Tina Lee. Kodi is autistic and blind, making it "really hard to do what everybody else does does," his mother told the judges last night.

However, once Kodi listened to music for the first time, everything changed.

"He listened, and his eyes just went huge, and he started singing," Tina said. "I realized he's an entertainer. Through music and performing, he was able to withstand living in this world. It actually has saved his, life playing music."

Tina helped Kodi to the piano, but he had everything under control from there as he delivered a beautiful rendition of "A Song for You" by Donny Hathaway.

The people in the audience—and the judges—were quite clearly in shock. Kodi received a standing ovation and a roaring applause from all four judges, Simon Cowell, Gabrielle Union, Julianne Hough, and Howie Mandel. "What just happened there was extraordinary," said Cowell. "I'm going to remember this moment for the rest of my life."

Gabrielle Union—who felt especially connected to Kodi's story as a new mother—hit her Golden Buzzer for the singer. As all AGT fans know, each judge is allowed one Golden Buzzer hit per season, which automatically sends the contestant into the live show rounds.

The live shows will air June 9 on NBC. We look forward to cheering on Kodi throughout the season!
