Alexa speech to text (STT) and send string variable with Kodi Input.SendText

Hello. I am trying to setup a way to say a movie title to Alexa and have that stored as a HA variable and sent to Kodi via JSON RPC Input.SendText,

example, Alexa type on bedroom kodi, “Movie Title”

I have the rest_command and script setup to send text to Kodi and that is working when triggered manually, but I haven’t figured out a way to do the STT part.

I’m thinking if I could have HA convert the “Movie Title” as said to a text variable and input that into the script text:, it would work. Is this possible? Can anyone assist? Thank you!

    method: "post"
      content-type: "application/json"
    payload: '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Input.SendText", "params": {"text": "{{ text }}"}, "id": 1}'

      text: Movie Title
