Katelyn Rodriguez (‘18) leaves the crowd speechless as she performs ‘Rumor Has It’ by Adele on the amp as her final act of Eagle’s Got Talent on April 27th. “Performing at EAHS felt bittersweet because the competition has been something that I look forward to every year and knowing that I won’t be doing it again pushed me to me to give the best three performances of my high school career”, Rodriguez said. For four consecutive years Rodriguez has been performing songs from artists that inspire her to sing and that have an important meaning.
“There are so many artists who inspire me to sing, but the main one would have to be Adele. Just the way she holds herself as a performer and pours every emotion into her performances pushes me to impact people through my lyrics as well and to always give my performances my absolute best. I’ve sang an Adele song all four years during the competitions just to show my appreciation for her artistry and to give the audience something they can relate to”, Rodriguez said. She definitely left her mark on the campus and she is an inspiration for future contestants.
