Katy Perry Sings “Firework” With Autistic Child: Watch The Video, Try Not To Cry

Katy Perry took the stage for Comedy Central’s autism benefit Night of Too Many Stars but this time she wasn’t the star. That designation would go to Jodi DiPiazza, an autistic girl who made a breakthrough with the help of music. Jodi accompanied the superstar on “Firework,” playing piano and singing with Perry in front of a few thousand at New York City’s Beacon Theatre.

The special airs Sunday (October 21), but you can watch this truly moving video up top. The duet starts at the 3:10 mark, but it’s worth watching the whole package, unless you’d rather your colleagues not see you bawling in your cubicle. For information on how you can donate, go here.
