Fourth Grader's Viral Performance of John Lennon's 'Imagine' Has Us Weeping

This fourth grader's performance of John Lennon's world peace anthem, "Imagine," has us in tears.

During the May 2018 talent show at Lakeside Elementary School in Chisago City, Minnesota, 10-year-old Adam Kornowski stunned students and parents alike with a touching cover of the iconic 1971 song. The auditorium was completely entranced as the young student played the piano himself while singing along like a total pro. 

"There wasn’t a parent in the room with a dry eye by the end. He got a standing ovation and the applause lasted forever!!" Adam's mother Michelle Cavarnos Kornowski captioned the performance on her Facebook page. The video has since earned more than 12 million views and 280,000+ shares. 

In a follow-up Facebook post, Michelle thanked everyone who shared her Adam's angelic performance, writing, "People have said the most beautiful things and I know he is feeling wonderful about it. I will keep reading the comments and sharing them with Adam. I am in awe of the response. So thank you all!!"

Adam Kornowski definitely has a musical career ahead of him!
