Seeing Weird Al trend on Facebook yesterday, I was curious. What I found was beautiful.
Night of Too Many Stars, as explained by the website:
Since 2006, Night of Too Many Stars has raised over $18 million, giving children and adults with autism the opportunities they deserve to learn, contribute and live the fullest lives possible. While many great organizations focus primarily on autism research, Night of Too Many Stars and New York Collaborates for Autism raise funds to support autism schools, programs and services.
The show aired on Comedy Central Sunday, March 8, 2015. The highlight of the show was 12 year old Jodi DiPiazza. According to UpRoxx, she was diagnosed with Autism at the age of two, but has accomplished many wonderful things in her little life. Her appearance on the show featured her playing piano, singing Weird Al’s hit Star Wars parody. “Yoda” with none other than the king of parody himself. Weird Al appears in full Jedi attire, and appears very humbled by her great performance. Accompanying Jodi and Weird Al are a choir of Autistic children. This is truly a feel-good video. But don’t take my word for it.
The force is VERY strong with them…….
