Kodi, who has also been revealed to be autistic, won the Gabrielle Union's Golden Buzzer after wowing the judges with his powerful vocals. This most recent performance of his had even Simon Cowell, who is known for his bluntness when it comes to critiquing performances, in a trance.

The judge can be seen clasping his hands together and smiling so broadly as he watched on in awe. Not wanting to do anything to disturb the excellent performance, the listening audience chose to contribute to the emotional vibe by lending their phone lights to adorn the venue as Kodi sang.
