Won't stop singing...

I have a 7 year old son who is highly gifted. He is constantly singing or humming. This behavior occurs at home and school. So far, his teachers have been willing to work with the behavior. They have gotten his singing down to a quiet hum. Other than the singing issue, he is a happy, normal, and well-behaved little boy. Has anyone out there experienced this with their child?
