Students and teachers treated Warren Stone like a rock star at Royall Elementary School in Florence Thursday morning.
Stone's daughter attends the school. He's competing in NBC's singing competition, "The Voice."
The 31-year-old grew up in the Hannah community of Florence County and found his way to "The Voice" Season 4 after giving up his music career to become a firefighter.
It didn't take long for Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine to turn his chair around when Stone started to sing his version of "Colder Weather" by the Zac Brown Band.
The students at Royall Elementary made signs for Stone, and faculty members showered him with gifts.
He says it feels good to come home to an overwhelming show of support.
"This is just an absolute honor. And to be able to do this and to have all these kids make these signs and stuff, it's just emotional, overwhelming. I'm very grateful for Royall, for the Pee Dee, for the support I've gotten from everyone," said Stone.
He says he's living out his dream and feels as if he will continue to soar on the show.
