Jodi DiPiazza brought her musical talent to the main stage in 2012 when the then-11-year-old autistic musician performed "Firework" with Katy Perry for Jon Stewart's "Night of Too Many Stars," a star-studded autism benefit show.
The Rochelle Park, New Jersey native was diagnosed with autism when she was 2. That didn't stop her from going on to Mannes College of Music Preparatory Division to study piano, voice, music theory and composition. She also studies jazz piano, guitar and songwriting.
On Sunday night, DiPiazza, now 13, returned to this year's "Night of Too Many Stars" show with Weird Al Yankovic to perform "Yoda," a comic remix of "Lola" by The Kinks. Before the performance concluded, the pair was joined by the Actionplay Chorus, a group of autistic singers.
