15-Year-Old Kenadi Dodds Dedicates Original Country Song To Dad

In this amazing audition, 15-year-old Kenadi Dodds shares her original country song with the judges on America’s Got Talent.


Right before her audition starts, Kenadi and her family head backstage and they are all so excited, especially her little sisters. Once onstage, she shares with the judges how her dad used to play the guitar for her when she was younger and influenced her to start making music.

Kenadi also shares that her family suffers from an eye disease where they continue to lose their vision until they are fully blind. She is the only one in her family who does not have the disease.

“My little sister told me that she wanted to see me on the biggest stage in the world before it’s too late and her vision is gone,” Kenadi tells the judges.

Once Simon Cowell hears that Kenadi is going to perform an original song, he asks her what the song is about.

“It’s about all the support my parents have given me for chasing my dreams to be a country singer,” she says.

While she is singing, she shows off just how strong and big her voice is! It is amazing to listen to, and she sings with such emotion!

“Well you’re a little firecracker, aren’t you?” says Simon after Kenadi finishes her song.

As the judges share their thoughts on her performance, Kenadi starts to tear up a little bit. “I’m just so happy to be here, and I’m so grateful for this opportunity and for all the people who have supported me this far,” she says.

“This is just the beginning for you. I promise you,” says Howie Mandel. “Your future is already set in stone from this moment.”

Kenadi gets 4 yeses from the judges, and her little sisters run onstage to give her a big hug and congratulate her. May Kenadi continue to follow her dreams, and we can’t wait to see more of her in this competition!
