Rockport — Camden Hills Regional High School's student body proved it is full of future stars during the 2014 National Honor Society Talent Show at the Strom Auditorium March 14.

Fifteen acts vied for top honors during the event, which included 14 musical acts and one dance duo. When the lights came up and the votes had been counted, sophomore Jamie Oshima’s rendition of “Ain’t Nobody” took first place honors. The brother and sister act of Harper and Aiden Gordon received the first runner-up prize for their version of “Elegy.” Second runner-up went to Chloe Isis and Oshima performing the song “One and Only.”

Oshima showed later in the evening just how versatile of a musician he is by playing guitar and drums with his hands and one guitar with his feet – often all at the same time.

Other acts included Jack Orne, Jacob Corney, Duncan Hall and Chase Winn playing “Carry on My Wayward Son,” Austin Pohlman performed “Neon;” Molly Mann and Oshima performed “New York State of Mind;” Rebecca Johnson and Bridget Mellon sang “Some Things are Meant to Be;” Hope Osmond performed “So Much Better;” Sadie Allen, Emily Bowen, Emma Vannorsdall, Abby Chamberlin, Erin Dowd, Colby Arau, Connor Davis, Nick Leclerc, Ryan Shields and Jack Moody rocked the house with their version “Love Me Again;” Orne, Hall, Aiden Gordan and Henry Laurita performed “Mexico;” Tori Arau played her original song, “Perfect;” Alice Wang performed “Heart” sung in her native language; and Hannah Corney channeled her inner Otis Redding with her rendition of “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay.”

The lone dance act included Harper Gordon and Bella Fisher dancing in a hip-hop style to the song “My Chick Bad.”

Advisors for the National Honor Society are Camden Hills’ teachers Tom Gray and Faith Vautour.
