H.E.R. and Kodi Lee Light It up For ‘America’s Got Talent’ Duet: Watch

Billboard Music

One of the magical moments from America’s Got Talent’s live show on Wednesday night (Aug. 18) didn’t involve any of the competitors.

The Grammy and Academy Award-winner H.E.R. stopped by to deliver a performance of her powerful new song “Hold On,” only this time she had help.

Kodi Lee, the prodigious singer and pianist who won season 14 of AGT and melted hearts everywhere, dueted with the U.S. star.

Despite being blind and autistic, the Korean-American artist was a revelation during his winning run on the TV talent quest, proving to the world that challenges are just obstacles to overcome.

“Hold On” appeared on H.E.R.’s Back of My Mind, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 albums chart last month.

The performance took place a day after the second AGT quarterfinals round.
