Katy Perry Performs ‘Firework’ With Young Autistic Fan Jodi DiPiazza: Your Good Cry Of The Day [VIDEO]

Pull out the hanky, because you’re about to witness the incredible power of music.

On Sunday night, a group of the most talented comedians and musicians gathered in support of autism programs, schools, and services for Comedy Central’s Night Of Too Many Stars benefit at The Beacon Theater in New York City. One of them was Katy Perry. In an emotional musical collaboration, she teamed up with Jodi DiPiazza, who suffers from autism.

When their daughter was diagnosed with autism, Jodi DiPiazza’s parents were told “don’t expect too much” and they were afraid she would never speak, but watch her accompany singer Katy Perry flawlessly in this touching duet.

This video of Jodi DiPiazza’s story is one of parents who refused to give up on a talented but challenged daughter, who worked through hours of intensive therapy every day to build on a love of music and engage and connect with the world.
