Can anyone tell me what chord the key boader is playing during the chorus . It takes place at about 1min 15 seconds in and happens many times after. Thank you in advance! Also is it the same chord throughout the entire song?

It's a series of chords, none of them unusual.

I'm not the best at recognizing chords, especially in non-classical stuff, but I think it's like this....
(only listened to that one part; dunno about the rest of the song)

The passage is in E minor. The chords are:
A minor, E minor, E minor; then E minor, E minor, A minor ...then the whole pattern repeats.

In chordal terms, that's IV-I-I; I-I-IV

....which can also be said as:

subdominant, tonic, tonic; tonic, tonic, subdominant.

Thank you so much for the quick reply. Is he doing the same thing in both hands or octaves in the left or something totally different? Once again thank you so much!

We can only see in a limited way what the keyboard is doing there, but I'd guess it's octaves in the left hand and repeated chords in the right hand.
