Watch Weird Al Yankovic perform his hit ‘Yoda’ with a group of autistic children

Back in 2012, then 11-year-old Jodi DiPiazza performed “Firework” with Katy Perry on Night of Too Many Stars, and it was a blowout success. This year, she performed “Yoda” with Weird Al Yankovic in his parody of “Lola” by The Kinks. Backing them up was the Actionplay Chorus, a group of young singers with autism.

From Uproxx:

DiPiazza was diagnosed with autism at age 2. She has accomplished a ton in her young life, being a student at the Mannes College of Music Preparatory Division, as well as studying piano, voice, music theory, composition, jazz piano, guitar, and songwriting. When she was just 9, she wrote a song called “Heroes of Autism” for Toys R Us and helped that campaign raise more than $3 million.
