OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

Some Ocean Springs students are getting ready for a performance of a lifetime: singing with a classic rock band.

Twenty-five members of the Ocean Springs Upper Elementary Show Choir will sing the choruses of the band Foreigner's popular song, "I Want to Know What Love Is" Saturday night. The choir won the honor by receiving the most votes in an online competition.

They've been busy rehearsing for their big moment in the spotlight at Hard Rock Live.

"I was very excited because it's one of my favorite bands," said sixth-grader Rachel Robinson.

In addition to singing with Foreigner, the choir will receive $500 and members will help sell Foreigner CDs to support music programs all over the country.

"Oh, I was so excited because I've wanted to do something like this my whole life," said sixth-grader Lauren Hartley. "I've worked so hard to this point, so I'm extremely excited to do something I love to do."
