Based on crowd reactions, the fifth annual “NOJO Night Live” held last week was a rousing success.

Sponsored by the school’s National Honor Society with proceeds going to the William Clay Johnson Memorial Scholarship Fund, the event was held last Thursday in the North Johnston gym.

Johnson, a member of the National Honor Society, served as an emcee at the NOJO Night Live event four years ago prior to his untimely death.

The show included a mixture of musicians, singers, skits and comic acts provided by North Johnston students, faculty and alumni.

Emcees for the evening were Caleb Mooring, Trace Shirley and Taylor Woodard.

Their job was to keep the crowd, estimated at more than 200 people, entertained between acts by telling jokes, both good and corny, as the stage was being prepared for the different acts.

Musical acts for the evening included Skylar Blake performing “Say Something,” Clayton Baker with “Amazing Grace;”  “Offering,” performed by Camden Mooring, Amy Mooring and Caleb Mooring, and “Too Good at Goodbyes” by Marcus Herndon with Lauren House on piano.

Also, Meagan McKeel with “Good Enough, Marcus Herndon with “Hallelujah,” Samantha Oliver with “Palace” and “Islands in the Stream” featuring Rhonda Greenup and Trace Shirley.
