On Thursday, Nov. 20, LGHS hosted its annual Unplugged Talent Show. Eighteen acts and over thirty musicians performed everything from classic jazz ballads to acoustic versions of today’s hit songs. The MCs, senior brothers Brian and Steven Schunk, kept the crowd entertained between acts with witty spoofs that showed their sense of humor, feminine sides, and thighs. Highlights included juniors Tessa Carol and Aiden Drugge’s original mashup of Hey There Delilah, Come On Get Higher, and Break Even, as well as seniors Liat Rubin and Aidan Adams-Campeau’s slow and soulful version of Kanye West’s Heartless.
