Classic rock legend Foreigner performs at the Fair
CHIEFTAIN PHOTO/CHRIS MCLEAN Karter Clennin, 3, of Pueblo West cools off with a tart lemonade drink this week during the Colorado State Fair.
Foreigner — known for hit songs such as “I Want to Know What Love Is,” “Juke Box Hero,” “Urgent,” and “Double Vision” — will play a show beginning at 7 p.m. and will be accompanied by some local talent for one of their songs.
The Centennial High School Schola Cantorum choir will be providing backup vocals when Foreigner performs “I Want to Know What Love Is,” in what’s sure to be a memorable experience for those involved.
The choir’s appearance is part of Foreigner’s commitment, together with the GRAMMY Foundation, to keep music programs thriving in high schools.
