PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Want to know what love is? (And this isn't even a Valentine's Day story.)
For Foreigner, known for its myriad rock and roll tunes including "Juke Box Hero,” “Feels Like The First Time,” “Urgent,” and "Hot Blooded,” it's all about including the community -- and its fans -- in very personal ways. And so, for the second time on the Capitol Theatre stage, the group has invited the Port Chester High School Choir to join them when they perform Feb. 19 at 8 p.m.
Linda Ventura, choral director at Port Chester High School said her Select Choir, the advanced vocal ensemble at the high school, will be onstage singing "I Want to Know What Love Is" with the band. "We will be working with Foreigner to promote The Grammy Foundation, which raises money and public awareness for music in public schools all over the country," she said.
In addition, students will help sell the band's "Greatest Hits" CD before and after the concert, with all monies going directly to the Foundation. "Foreigner is dedicated to raising funds in conjunction with the Grammy Foundation in Los Angeles to help keep music education alive in our nation’s schools," explained John Lappen, Foreigner's marketing director?. "It’s important to the band that kids have access to a well-rounded education which includes exposure to the arts in education."
With 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 top 30 hits, Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable musical arsenal that continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. "I Want to Know What Love Is" remains one of its number one songs.
