It's been about a week since a fourth-grader from Chisago City's piano performance at a school talent show was posted to Facebook, and it has already racked up nearly 4 million views, 100,000 shares and 55,000 likes. 

The young star, Adam Kornowksi, played piano and sang to John Lennon's "Imagine." 

"There wasn’t a parent in the room with a dry eye by the end," Adam's mother, Michelle Cavarnos Kornowski wrote on Facebook.

"He got a standing ovation and the applause lasted forever!! 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!"

According to KARE 11, Kornowski is a fourth-grader at Lakeside Elementary School.
