There's nothing more magical than a golden buzzer moment on America's Got Talent.
On Tuesday night, a new season of NBC's hit reality competition show kicked off with a fresh batch of contestants.
From magicians to dancers, viewers witnessed a wide variety of acts. But there was one singer who completely wowed the entire room with his talents and story. Oh yes, we're talking about Kodi Lee.
The 22-year-old singer, who is blind and autistic, performed a song on the piano and impressed the judges. In fact, Gabrielle Union awarded him the golden buzzer that guaranteed a spot for him in the live shows.
"I'm a new judge this season and I'm also a new mom this year and it's the toughest job I've ever had and the most rewarding job I've ever had. You just want to give your kids the moon and the stars and the rainbows and tonight I'm going to give you something special," she shared. "You just changed the world."
Even host Terry Crews couldn't hide his enthusiasm at the singer who is headed to Hollywood for the remainder of the season.
"This child of God is a prodigy. Autism and blindness can't erase the smile from the face of @KodiLeeRocks," he shared on Twitter after the show. "Kodi has given HOPE, POWER, and HAPPINESS to those who feel marginalized because of who they are. Erase the DIS, highlight the ABILITY!"
The moment got us thinking of the few special contestants who have been able to receive a golden buzzer. Perhaps it was their voice. Maybe it was their ability to handle life's greatest obstacles. Whatever the case may be, the judges fell in love and provided viewers with more than a few heartfelt moments.
