North Carolina school receptionist belts out 'At Last' over intercom

- Some North Carolina students celebrated the end of the school year with a special performance from a school receptionist.

North Lincoln High School’s receptionist, 57-year-old Regina Ballard, posted a Facebook video of herself singing the Etta James classic, “At Last,” over the PA system.

“That’s it. It’s 3 o’clock, y’all. At 3:15, it’s official,” Ballard said before raising the volume of the classic song’s instrumental version on her computer. She revised some of the lyrics for the special occasion, singing, “at last, summer break has come along,” instead of “at last, my love has come along.”

She said she loves her job, but looks forward to spending time with her family during the summer.
