JODI DIPIAZZA TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM AT AUTISM SKATES

We are very excited to announce that Jodi DiPiazza will launch Autism Skates by singing the National Anthem!

Jodi is a two time finalist in the ASCAP Young Composers Awards 2011 and 2012.

October 2012, Jodi Performed a duet with Katy Perry on “The Night of Too Many Stars” at NYC’s Beacon Theatre. Televised on Comedy Central, more than $4,000,000 was raised for autism education. An internet sensation, this performance received so much media and attention that Jodi has been featured in newspapers, magazines, on the radio, and television all over the world. Most importantly to Jodi, she appeared in both Bop and Popstar magazine.  She has received hundreds of emails, letters and cards, speaking of the hope and inspiration this performance has given to parents of children with autism, and since last October she has performed at fundraisers for The Arc, AutismNJ, Autism speaks, Children’s Aid and Family Services and many others.
