Thursday night in Tulsa some very special students got the chance to hit the stage with Foreigner.

They were chosen after submitting a video singing one of the band's number one hits.

We caught up with them at River Spirit Casino before the curtain went up.

Travis Guillory is a member of the Cascia Hall Choir.

His face was beaming as he said, "We are singing with Foreigner. We are singing 'I wanna know what love is.'"

And he wasn't alone in his excitement.

"I'm psyched. I've never been to a concert before and this is a pretty big leap, you know, singing on stage," Trent Westbrook said.

Cascia Hall choir director Candy Coonfield said the students have been preparing for this performance for a long time.

"They deserve it. They've been working really hard. This is a once in a lifetime chance for most of them," Coonfield said.

And not only that, the event is a fundraiser with a portion of CD sales at the show, going to fund high school music programs.

Foreigner bassist Jeff Pilson says it's a way to help support the future of the arts in education and take in a very cool experience at the same time.

"It brings joy to my face every time because you always kind of see it through their eyes and it's amazing their very excited and sometimes you see that little spark in somebody who you know maybe they are going to end up being a star or a performer something," Pilson said.

Foreigner also donated $500 to Cascia's chorus program.
