Tuscaloosa County High Choir Rock The Stage With Foreigner
It was a big night at the Amphitheatre in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
The venue got a new name on the same night that Foreigner and Loverboy were scheduled to perform.
The venue is now called The Mercedes-Benz Amphitheatre.
The announcement came at some point during the show.
However, with all the excitement, the highlight was the appearance of the Tuscaloosa County High choir to sing on stage with the band Foreigner.
The Wildcat choir joined the band to perform their signature No. 1 hit, I Want To Know What Love Is, in front of a packed house.
The reviews on the performance seem to agree it was a great moment during the show.

The internationally known rock band, Foreigner, was searching for a local high school choir to sing with them on stage.
Band management contacted Townsquare Media Director of Content/WFFN-FM Programmer, DC Chymes, and asked him to help find a high school choir to sing "I Want To Know What Love Is" at the Mercedes-Benz Amphitheatre.
What did he do?
"Well, we took it to the listeners and the community to let folks nominate a high school. We had the most nominations for County High," said Chymes.
It was definitely a good choice judging by the performance and the reactions to the concert.
And get used to saying the Mercedes-Benz Amphitheatre in Tuscaloosa.
