A fourth-grader from Chisago City, Minnesota is gaining social media attention after his performance of John Lennon's "Imagine" at his school's talent show. 

Adam Kornowski attends Lakeside Elementary School.

He performed the song accompanied by piano in May. Adam's mother, Michelle Cavarnos Kornowski, posted his selection on Facebook, according to CNN, but she didn't realize it would gain so much attention. 

Cavarnos Kornowski told CNN, "I think, originally, two of my friends shared it, and were very excited about it, 

"At some point, I realized it wasn't going to stop. I think I really knew it was going to be something when I started seeing comments from outside of the country."

The video has since garnered 9.2 million views and has been shared more than a quarter of a million times.
