15-Year-Old Kenadi Dodds Inspires With 'Be A Light' On AGT Semi-Finals

America’s Got Talent semi-finalist Kenadi Dodds returns to the stage with a beautiful rendition of ‘Be A Light.’


Country star Thomas Rhett wrote ‘Be A Light’ back in 2019 alongside Josh Miller, Josh Thompson and Matt Dragstrem. But, after the COVID-19 pandemic and continuing fight against racial injustice, he felt led to release the inspiring song.

“In a world full of hate, be a light
When you do somebody wrong, make it right
Don't hide in the dark, you were born to shine
In a world full of hate, be a light”

You may remember 15-year-old Kenadi from her emotional first audition on AGT. We learned that her love of music started from a very young age. He 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 that will eventually lead to full blindness. She is the only one in her family who does not have the disease. Her heartfelt original country song earned 4 ‘yes’ votes from the judges and, now, Kenadi is back with a semi-final performance of ‘Be A Light.’

“In a place that needs a change, make a difference
In a time full of noise, just listen
'Cause life is but a breeze, better live it
In a place that needs a change, make a difference”

From the piano to the vocals, this performance was absolutely perfect. Kenadi is definitely a serious contender in the competition and I have a feeling we have not seen the last of her.
