"Nothing Compares 2 U" By Prince/Sinead O'Connor

Lee was one of many who paid tribute to the late Irish singer with the song she made famous.

"Happy" by Pharrell

Listening to this makes us...happy!

"True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper

Lee decided to celebrate his birthday with — what else? — a song!

"Ordinary People" by John Legend

"We're just ordinary people, we don't know which way to go."

"You Are the Reason" by Calum Scott

As a special treat, he got to perform this tune with Leona Lewis.

"Stand by Me" by Ben E. King

It's an a cappella staple, but Kodi Lee proves it works on piano too, in case you forgot!

"Fly Me to the Moon" by Frank Sinatra

Clearly, Lee loves him some oldies.

"Take Me To Church" by Hozier

It may be performed in his music room, but we still got the church vibes.

@officialkodileerocks Who remembers this song?! Thank you for all the amazing song suggestions you guys have sent me! 😎🎶 What do you want to hear next?👇 #takemetochurch #hozier #coversong #kodilee #kodileerocks #agtwinner ♬ original sound - Kodi Lee

"Angels" by Robbie Williams

He should do more Robbie Williams, probably. He kills it!

"Lean on Me" by Bill Withers

A classic that will never go out of style, perfect to be sung in groups of friends or for someone special you love. It works in every context.

"Yellow" by Coldplay

One of the most beautiful songs ever written? Probably. If we had Kodi's talent, we'd cover it too.

"Black" by Pearl Jam

Another color, another cover. This is one of the few covers Lee performed without his piano; instead, a guitarist strums along.

"Fix You" by Coldplay

Clearly, Lee is a Coldplay fan, and their melodic music is a perfect fit for his piano-forward signature style.

"This Is Halloween" from The Nightmare Before Christmas

The spooky anthem from the Tim Burton classic is good for year round!

"Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman

After Luke Combs' cover gave the song new life, Lee decided to put his own spin on it as well.

"Vampire" by Olivia Rodrigo

The lead single from Rodrigo's second album has also been covered by AGT's Darci Lynne.

"Rewrite the Stars" from The Greatest Showman

Originally recorded as a high-flying duet between Zac Efron and Zendaya (they perform it in the movie while swinging from a trapeze), this is a beautiful paean to the power of love against the odds. If only we could...but maybe we can! A perfect fit for Lee's inspiring story.

"Just the Two of Us" by Grover Washington Jr. and Bill Withers

"This is for my best friend, Remy! Heck yeah!" said Lee online.

"Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker, Jr.

Who ya gonna call? Kodi!

The National Anthem

Not technically a "cover" since it's supposed to be sung by a different person every time, but we're including it for Lee's great vocal performance, and the fact that he sweetly performed it at his sister's graduation!
