Singer Katy Perry took part in Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars" benefit that seeks to finance educational and other basic social services programs for children with autism. Katy had so far performed one of her best and was even out shined by a very talented girl, Jodi Piazza.
Jodi, diagnosed with autism at age 2, played the piano and sang with Katy her hit song "Fireworks." The pop star, who has performed in numerous concerts, admitted on her twitter page that she was humbled by their musical performance and it was an uplifting and unforgettable performance.
"I will never forget last night. It was the most important moment thus far of what I do," she posted on Katy Perry @katyperry.
Jodi's parents are to be credited as well for developing her exceptional talent in spite her disability. Tom and Michelle DiPiazza never gave up on their daughter although they were told that they should not expect too much from her because of her condition.
Jodi's parents saw her talent for music and helped her develop the talent by allowing her to get a special autism education program that developed her music abilities.
The benefit program were attended by other super stars led by John Stewart, who believes that every child even those with disabilities like autism can still live, meaningful lives.
