Watch: Girl With Autism Performs With Weird Al on Comedy Central

March 09, 2015

Jodi DiPiazza, a 13-year-old pianist and singer with autism who brought down the house at 2012's Night of Too Many Stars, made another appearance at this year's event — this time performing alongside Weird Al Yankovic.

The duo performed "Yoda," Weird Al's parody of The Kinks' "Lola."  They were joined by the Actionplay Chorus, a group of children with autism.

Every few years, Night of Too Many Stars brings together comedians, actors and celebrities for a star-studded fundraiser for autism schools, programs and services with New York Collaborates for Autism. Since 2006, Night of Too Many Stars has raised over $18 million, giving children and adults with autism the opportunities they deserve to learn, contribute and live the fullest lives possible.

In 2012, DiPiazza's performance of "Firework" alongside Katy Perry brought tears of joy. Watch that performance below.
