Children of the 1980s will get to hear children of the 2010s perform "I Want to Know What Love Is" along with Foreigner when they take the stage at this year's Taste of Newport on Sept. 18, Corona del Mar High School officials announced.
"It's funny," said Val Jamora, the school's music director. "I was talking with the publicity manger, and they asked if I knew the song and I said 'Are you kidding me? I had my heart broken to that song at my junior high dance.'"
Foreigner will perform at 9 p.m., with 25 members of the Corona del Mar High School Madrigal Singers joining in "I Want To Know What Love Is," the band's No. 1 hit from 1985.
Foreigner also will make an unspecified donation to the CdM High School music program as part of an ongoing fundraiser that benefits the VH1 "Save The Music" Foundation.
