With the influx of social media influencers and more accessible means of self-promotion, the competition in the entertainment industry is getting tighter by the day. So for anyone to stand out from the competition, it’s a significant advantage to possess more than one talent. Cody Heims seems to have the upper hand because this rising star already has acting and music on his repertoire.
Cody Heims is a 27-year-old aspiring major recording artist who has started his career as an Instagram influencer in 2017 and has since merged into other areas of the entertainment industry. The rising artist from Honolulu, Hawaii, showcased his acting chops in Phases of Mahina, P.W.N.A.G.E.: People with No Actual Girl Experience, and a cameo on Hawaii Five-0, but he moved on to what his real passion has always been.
What Cody is most devoted to is his music. Growing up, Cody was inspired by his father, who was also a singer. It was also his father who influenced him to join America’s Got Talent when he was 15.

Cody is a new artist that will help shape the music industry with his own authentic sound, and lyrics that speak from experience and emotion.
