Adam Kornowski is a fourth-grader at the Lakeside Elementary School in Minnesota. In May 2018, he braved the stage at a small talent show… but little did he or his family know he’d quickly become a viral sensation and his performance would go viral with millions of shares online.

The 10-year-old, who has been playing piano since the age of five, decided to sing “Imagine” by John Lennon. Only one of the best songs, ever.

It’s amazing how a song can still make such an impact after so many years and spur so much emotion. And young Adam did certainly did it justice.

“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!” his proud mom Michelle wrote on Facebook. “A woman stopped me to tell me that she would buy it on iTunes if I put it out there!!

I love his bow at the end…so polite!”

Michelle can’t even keep up with the comments and words of praise.

See the viral performance below. Great job, Adam!
