The Force is certainly strong with Jodi di Piazza.

The 13 year old played piano and sang along with “Weird Al” Yankovic for his song “Yoda,” a “Star Wars-“inflected twist on The Kinks’ classic “Lola.”

The two appeared on Sunday as part of Comedy Central’s “Night of Too Many Stars,” an event that raises money for autism awareness.

Later in the performance, the two were joined onstage by a group of autistic children all providing impassioned backup vocals and fist pumps.

Di Piazza previously made headlines at 2012’s “Night of Too Many Stars” when she performed a duet with Katy Perry on latter’s song “Firework.” Di Piazza was diagnosed with autism at an early age, but through therapy and special education, has excelled in music and currently attends Mannes College of Music Preparatory Division.
