Most people would be too nervous to step up on a stage and perform in front of their peers and parents. For fourth-grader, Adam Kornowski, it is not a problem whatsoever as he stands on stage and sings a famous John Lennon song. He puts on a confident performance that is very advanced for his young years.
Adam attends Lakeside Elementary in Chicago City, Minnesota. When they announced a school talent show, he couldn’t wait to get up and take part. With a musician for a father, Adam is no stranger to performing in front of people. His dad has been teaching him to play the piano since he was 5-years-old and to go along with it, Adam has the voice of an angel.
Bravely taking to the stage, he played the piano with ease and sang John Lennon’s emotional ballad, ‘Imagine’ for the packed auditorium. The whole audience was stunned by Adam’s awesome talent; there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Adam’s mother, Michelle Kornowski, proudly looked on and recorded his beautiful performance. As soon as she uploaded it to Facebook, it quickly went viral with over 10 million people watching and gushing over Adam’s angelic rendition.
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!! A woman stopped me to tell me that she would buy it on iTunes if I put it out there!
Young Adam may have a great talent, but he is also gracious and grateful to his audience. Trained well by his musician father, he thanks the audience in the perfect way. If he continues to perform throughout his life, he’d better get used to standing ovations. With such amazing talent at such a young age, he has a bright future ahead of him.
