Roime Delacruz '22

The senior class 2022 presents their talents to the public of Edison High School.


On March 25, 2022, the class of 2022 showcased Edison High School student talents in a competition setting in the Frank N. Cangelosi gymnasium. There was a prom fashion show during the intermission of the talent show as well, and concessions were sold in the lobby. 

“I was super nervous because we didn’t have our auditorium this year for the talent show as it was under construction, so I wasn’t sure how it would go with the gym, but it turned out amazing,” Senior Class advisor Mrs. Elizabeth Fedowitz said. 

“Throughout the process of preparing for the talent show, it was very pleasing to see everyone express their talents and support one another. I enjoyed every practice and appreciate everyone who helped me along with the show,” said Keisha Ortiz ‘23. 

The performances were as follows: 

The host, Garid Garcia ’22, went on as the first act of the show, singing “Death of a Bachelor” by Panic! At the Disco. Brianna Reed ’22 and Ashley Ayala ’22 danced beside Garcia. 

Sam Go ’22 demonstrated his cup stacking skills. 

Arielis Canela ’23 sang “Waiting on a Miracle” by Stephanie Beatriz from the movie Encanto

Kris Reyes ’22 demonstrated the evolution of dancing styles with props involved.

Meher Mehta ’25 sang “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion. 

Ortiz sang “Control” by Zoe Wees. 

Geraldine Mendoza ’22 tap danced with Ms. Danielle Andriano. 

Jayden Johnson ’23 rapped with a guest rapper known as Kai. 

Hiramari Velazquez ’24 sang “Someone You Loved” by Lewis Capaldi.

Megan Ginsberg ’22 played “How Far I’ll Go” by Auli’i Cravalho from the movie Moana with her concert flute. 

Lauren Dick ’22 sang “All Too Well” by Taylor Swift while playing the background music of the song with an acoustic guitar. 

Alyson Zhang ’22, Mayukha Ragimanu ’22, and Casey Kregeloh ’22 played “I See the Light” from the movie Tangled in an orchestrated performance. Zhang played the viola while Ragimanu and Kregeloh played the violins.

Simone Stephen ’22 sang “7 Years” by Lukas Graham with a slideshow she constructed of memories taken in pictures that the class of 2022 made throughout their lives. 

With Stephen being the last act of the talent show, the audience and judges voted on their favorite performance of the show. Dick won a gift card as the judge’s pick. Ortiz and Go won a clothing item as the fan favorites. 

“The performers all supported each other. Everyone had their own unique talent and way of performing it. I admire some of these kids that did it for the first time in front of everyone. I know I couldn’t have been able to do that in high school,” said Fedowitz. 

During the intermission of the talent show (following Mendoza’s performance), there was a prom fashion show in which students walked across the gym in prom outfits. The following are the list of students who modeled for the prom fashion show: Sneha Rajagopalan ‘23, Rucha Joshi ‘23, Reva Gholap ‘23, Remee Roy ‘23, Adedoyin Ayeni ‘23, Adia Bashir ‘22, Shria Prakash ‘22, Keyaben Patel ‘23, Hena Patel ‘23, Anna Yuan ‘22, Alexis Olsen ‘22, Natalie Dewland ‘22, and Cadence Sarni ‘23. EHS seniors can take dresses from this collection to keep for their prom at the end of the year. 

This EHS event gives a special thank you to Fedowitz and fellow Senior Class Advisor Ms. Erin Franey, Mr. Charles Ross as Edison High principal, Garcia for hosting the evening, and the judges of the show; Mr. James Huang, Mrs. Deana Loria, Mrs. Amanda Gonczi, Mrs. Alexandra Van De Wetering, and Mrs. Antonella Marhefka. 

“The talent show is all about having fun and enjoying the show,” voiced Go.
