Foreigner to perform with MHS choir students

By The Mercury

When rock band Foreigner takes the McCain stage this weekend, it will be joined by the Manhattan High School Choir. Foreigner plays at 7:30 pm Sunday.

The band has a longstanding partnership with the Grammy Foundation to support its mission of maintaining and restoring music education in America’s public schools, according to a press release from the university.

As part of this work, Foreigner will host members of the Manhattan High School Choir, who will sing “I Want to Know What Love Is” with the band.

“Anything we can do to provide our young ones with the tools to express themselves through music is our goal in this partnership,” said lead guitarist Mick Jones.

The band also will donate $500 dollars to the choir, and choir members will sell a CD/DVD set of Foreigner’s greatest hits for $20 before and after the concert. Proceeds from these sales will be donated to the Grammy Foundation.
