The young boy's mom, Michelle Cavarnos Kornowski, uploaded her son's school talent show performance online. In her caption, the doting mom revealed that those who attended the small gathering were in tears while listening to Adam's rendition.

"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!" wrote Michelle.

The over three-minute clip opens with Adam sitting behind the piano and singing the words to Lennon's song. He is wearing a Navy Blue shirt and jeans, and he also had his eyeglasses on. Adam is able to hit the signature high notes on "Imagine." His performance concluded with loud applause from the audience.

In a follow-up post, Michelle thanked those who watched Adam's video on her Facebook account, as well as those that reposted it on various online platforms.

Adam's cover of "Imagine" is not the first video that was uploaded by his mom. The 10-year-old previously sang Leonard Cohen's hit song "Hallelujah." The boy's dad, Karl Kornowski, revealed that Adam started playing the piano when he was just 5 years old.

John Lennon Talks About 'Imagine'

Prior to his death, Lennon opened up about "Imagine."

"We're not the first to say 'Imagine No Countries' or 'Give Peace a Chance,' but we're carrying that torch, like the Olympic torch, passing it hand to hand, to each other, to each country, to each generation... and that's our job. Not to live according to somebody else's ideas of how we should live..." said Lennon.
