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."
