Though most of their hits were released in the late 1970s and 1980s, Foreigner still maintains a huge following — yes, even among teens. And it’s teens who should be paying attention most, since they’re being given the chance to perform with Foreigner when they come to Chicago’s FirstMerit Bank Pavilion on Friday, June 6th, 2014.

In a contest being held by 104.3 K-HITS, Chicagoland choirs are being pitted against each other for the chance to end up on stage with Foreigner — only one choir can win. The competition is based off the choirs’ performances. High School choirs are expected to submit a thirty-second video of their performance of Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is” — or any of Foreigner’s other hits — to K-HITS by Thursday, May 8th at 5pm to submit. From that batch of performances, K-HITS will choose a set of finalists.

Once finalists are chosen, K-HITS will turn the fate of the competing choirs over to the internet, posting the finalists to their website so everyone can vote on a winner. Voting will be open Friday, May 9th through Friday, May 16th.

The winner won’t only win the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of singing the #1 hit single “I Want To Know What Love Is” on stage with Foreigner, the winning choir will also receive a $1,000 donation along with tickets to the concert, where Foreigner will play with Styx and Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles.
