GRAND RAPIDS TWP., Mich. (WZZM) - It was a perfect evening for a concert: clear skies, comfortable temperatures and a sold out arena.
An enthusiastic crowd greeted legendary rock band Foreigner last night at the Frederik Meijer Gardens Thursday night.
The highlight for many in the audience was when the back-up singers joined the band. Fifteen choir students from City and Creston High Schools in Grand Rapids energized the crowd with their rendition of "I Want to Know What Love Is."
Foreigner picks a high school choir in each city on their tour. It's part of their effort with the Grammy Foundation to raise money for school music programs hit by budget cuts. Foreigner donated $500 to the Grand Rapids Public School Chorale and also made a donation to the Grammy Foundation to further their efforts for in-school music program around the country.

Foreigner is a British-American band formed in 1976. The group has racked up many smash hits, 10 multi-platinum albums, and sold out concert tours. They sang many of their hits last night: Cold As Ice, Hot Blooded, and Jukebox Hero to name a few.
