As the end of the semester approaches for Canyon High School, a virtual Talent Rally took place. Acts in the talent rally ranged from freshman to juniors at Canyon. Singers showed off their beautiful voices and dancers displayed their unique moves.

Singers included freshman Isabell Avalos, Samantha Godoy, and sophomore Teriana Guerra. Dancers included Samuel Sierra, Emanuel Zavalza, and the CHS dance team. Other acts included ice skating from Leiah Abellera and a routine by the CHS cheer team.

One singer who stood out was Teriana Guerra. She was a stand-out because she chose to sing “Bold,” an original song that she wrote and played. She sang about being the struggles that come with trying to be bold. Guerra also played the ukulele as she sang, showing off her many talents as she impressed the virtual audience.

Another standout during the talent rally was junior Samuel Sierra. He performed what was called and “war dance.” He performed in beautiful feathers that came from his Native American heritage. What could only be described as hypnotizing, he hopped and strutted to a beat as the virtual audience was stunned by his incredible dance.

Although it was weird for students and staff to experience a talent show virtually from home, this talent rally was a success and a glimmer of normalcy.
