Thirteen members of the Foothill High School Choir hit a musical high note when they joined Foreigner on stage at Wente Vineyards to sing “I Want to Know What Love Is."
The choir was chosen after being nominated by a parent of one of the members during the first week of July for a radio contest put on by KKIQ.
In addition to being selected to perform with the rock band, the choir will be given a $500 grant. The funds raised during last week's performance through CD sales and an auctioned Les Paul guitar also benefitted the Grammy Foundation, which strives to keep music in the schools.
Joann Koobatian, choir director of Foothill High School, says the choir won the contest after votes were tallied. She said she was told by someone at the radio station that they won “by a landslide.”
The choir members met early last week at Foothill High School to plan their concert attire and to rehearse the song.
Some of the student singers had just graduated and some of the students will be in advanced choir next year.
