On May 16, the America's Got Talent Season 14 winner shared a heartwarming video dedicated to his mother, Tina Lee, for Mother's Day. The clip was a montage showing various footage of Lee and his mother bonding together, including them on the AGT set, them sitting at his piano, and also smiling together on the red carpet. 

"Happy Mother's Day to the best mom ever," Lee wrote on the video. "I could never do this without you! I love you! #heckyeah!"

"Hey Guys! 👋 I was so busy hanging out with my awesome mom on Mother’s Day, I almost forgot to post about how amazing she is!🙈 Happy Mothers Day To The Best Mom Ever! Isn’t she just the best?!😍❤️ #heckyeah!!! #kodilee #kodileerocks #kodileesmom #mothersday #bestmom #agt #agtwinner #helloworld," Lee captioned his post, to which America's Got Talent Host Terry Crews responded with a slew of heart emojis. 

This heartfelt post isn't the only way Lee has honored his mom, who's proven to be his biggest supporter. On May 2, he also took to his official Instagram page to share the sweetest photo of the mother and son duo sitting together on top of an America's Got Talent: All-Stars trunk. 

"Have you followed my mom's page yet? If you have #heckyeah if not this is it @kodileesmom Please give her a follow💯💝🎯✔️🙏," Lee lovingly captioned the post. 

In February, Lee also opened up about his and his mother's close bond to Deseret News. He told the outlet that one of his favorite songs is "I Love You Always Forever" by Donna Lewis because the lyrics remind him of his mom.

“It’s my favorite love song because my mommy sang that song to me, my whole life, even as a baby!” Lee told the outlet in an email. “It makes me feel loved and secure that my mama will always love me and be there for me.”

Tina also opened up to Deseret News about why Lee winning Season 14 of America's Got Talent meant so much to them. “When Kodi won … I felt like the whole world won because it opened up so many doors,” she said. “Everything that we fought for and everything that we’ve done for him, it made me just so happy to know that he’s opening doors for all the other parents’ kids."
