Foreigner Discuss Great Career Moments at GRAMMY.com

GRAMMY-nominated rock band Foreigner recently participated in an installment of the GRAMMY Museum's An Evening With series. Before an intimate audience at the Museum's Clive Davis Theater, founding member Mick Jones and current vocalist Kelly Hansen discussed some of the greatest moments of the band's career and music education.

"It started out very simply as just a personal romantic song, and gradually it just accumulated more of a universal feeling,'" said Jones on writing "I Want To Know What Love Is." "Nobody had really ever worked with a gospel choir, so we took a chance. Before we did the take [the New Jersey Mass Choir] said the Lord's prayer and I was just like, 'Wow, I don't know what's going to happen here but I think it's going to be good.' And it was. It was an incredible emotional experience. And the song went on to do what it did."
