West Brook choir rehearsing for big time performance

Posted: Updated:

They're known as one of the most popular rock acts in the world and they're bringing their show to Ford Park.

On Sunday, Foreigner will be hitting the stage with special guests, the West Brook High School Choir.

12News held a competition with local high school choirs and Foreigner chose West Brook singers to join them on stage at this Sunday's concert.

"It's going to be a fun experience and I can actually say that I sang with Foreigner for my senior year," said Adriana Burns during rehearsal.

With Foreigner playing on the classroom stereo, 12News sat in on a rehearsal. The students have been practicing long hours before their live performance with a group that continues to top the charts.

Foreigner formed in 1976 and has earned 16 top 30 hits including: "I want to know what love is", "Waiting for a girl like you", and "Juke Box Hero."

Their music steadily stands in the top 15 at Classic Rock Radio and continues to grab the attention of both older and younger audiences.

"I get to perform with some people I've been listening to since I was in middle school," said Jamaal Lane, who will be singing Sunday.

It's a dream come true for these students who have practiced long hours to make their dreams become reality.

"They're all very talented and what I appreciate most about them is that they are very dedicated. They listen to advice I have to give them and make it happen and it does pay off," said choir director Jimmy Robertson.

You can catch Foreigner and the West Brook High School choir Sunday night at 7:30 pm at Ford Arena.

Tickets are available at the Ford Park Box Office.
