A North Carolina high school receptionist stunned students on their last day of school on Wednesday, by giving a stellar rendition of an Etta James classic.
Regina Ballard posted a video on Wednesday of herself singing 'At Last' over the PA system at North Lincoln High School in Lincolnton, North Carolina.
'I love my job, y'all, but I look forward to summers when I can spend time with my grands & family, sooo...here it is...At Last!!!' Ballard said in the video's caption.
Comments on the video all point to the woman's amazing voice.

LOL, I suppose it beats belting out Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out”.
Most businesses don’t give the employees summers off.
That said, I hope this lady has a great summer.
At first I thought she was talking about her grandkids....
Me, too, before I looked at the picture. It’s very sweet that she wants to spend time with her grandparents.
Yeah but it’s good for the kids to be given a break from indoctrination, and no point paying for some support staff positions that have no need to be there. I’m be ecstatic as well at the end of the last day before summer if I had it off like she does.
Yep, Summer Parole.
That takes me back to the early 1970’s.
[LOL, I suppose it beats belting out Alice Coopers Schools Out.]
I think she would have needed Gibson SG’s and a Marshall stack or two to do that the real way.....
I agree about the children.
Expect her to be severely reprimanded for cultural appropriation of a black woman’s song.
“Dat white womun done misappropriated Miz James’ song. Miz James be black, don’ ya know.”
“At Last” is a song written by Mack Gordon (born Morris Gittler) and Harry Warren (born Salvatore Antonio Guaragna) for the musical film Sun Valley Serenade (1941).
So an Italian and a Jew wrote it.
This woman is blessed by Almighty God with genuine talent.
Thanks for sharing!
Beautiful! Sent this to my daughter (a music teacher specializing in voice) and she thought it terrific. However, in her school, a receptionist got in trouble for singing a snowy day song. Fortunately that grinchy administrator is GONE.
Glad she appreciated it, as a teacher she must be feeling the same excitement at this time! :)
