On May 31, the America's Got Talent Season 14 winner uploaded a video of himself singing the chorus of "Happy" by Pharrell Williams, spreading his joy to fans. This time, Lee sang a cappella without his signature piano; however, his voice sounded as awesome as always as he clapped along to the beat and used a slight rasp in his voice. 

"Because I’m HAPPY!😎 I’m even MORE happy because I’m reposting my favorite videos from my Hello World Challenge in just a few days! ✨ Have you entered yet!? #heckyeah #becauseimhappy #pharrellwilliams #happy #kodilee #kodileerocks #agtwinner #helloworld #agt," Lee captioned the post, referencing his original song "Hello World" with Colin Hay that was released earlier this year

About "Happy" by Pharrell Williams

A smash hit in 2014, "Happy" was originally written and produced by Williams for the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. It was named the #1 Billboard song that year, and received a Grammy Award for Best Music Video. 

"Happy" by Pharrell Williams lyrics

It might seem crazy what I am 'bout to say
Sunshine, she's here, you can take a break
I'm a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don't care, baby by the way

Huh (Because I'm happy)
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
(Because I'm happy)
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
(Because I'm happy)
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
(Because I'm happy)
Clap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do

Here come bad news talking this and that (Yeah)
Well give me all you got, don't hold back (Yeah)
Well I should probably warn you I'll be just fine (Yeah)
No offense to you don't waste your time
Here's why
