Night of Too Many Stars Autism Benefit

The video available on the following link totally had me tearing up.  Comedy Central is putting on a benefit to raise money for autism programs, it will be aired this Sunday night at 8pm EST.  Jodi DiPiazza was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2, and got to perform with Katy Perry.  she is one of the kids that has greatly benefitted from programs that receive funding from events such as these.  She's got an amazing talent on the piano, I loved seeing her face light up when the crowd was cheering for her:

What did you think of the performance?  Does your area have good programs available for autism?
