Katy Perry Sings with Autism Sufferer, Proves She’s Awesome
Subscribe to TRI-102.5 on
Last weekend, a bunch of celebrities gathered at New York’s Beacon Theatre for ‘Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs.’ The event helps support autism programs across the US, and what drives the impressive fundraising are the celebrities in attendance. These included Amy Poehler, Stephen Colbert, Carly Rae Jepsen, and host Jon Stewart.
But the attendee that truly stole the show was Jodi DiPiazza, who has the neural disorder; in front of thousands of people, Jodi gave an impressive rendition of Katy Perry’s ‘Firework.’ Then, in classic Katy Perry style, the singer herself joined the sweet young girl on stage.
The two finished out the song together to a standing ovation, and we were left fighting back a few warranted tears.
