When long-time rockers Foreigner appear locally at the Mattress Firm Amphitheater in Chula Vista on Aug. 29, a local high school choir will sing with them and the Pointer singers would love to be that choir.
A choir competition is currently underway, sponsored by KGB radio, allowing people to vote for their favorite school, with the winner appearing onstage with Foreigner as well as pocketing $2,500.
Four runners-up will receive $500 each.
Voting is at http://101kgb.iheart.com/contests/enter-online/foreigner-high-school-choir-competition-12642/?apt_refid=&apt_id=12642&apt_type=gallery.
Voting has begun and will continue until May 26. One vote per e-mail address per day is allowed. Voters must click arrows to advance to the PLHS choir, click "Vote" and fill out other boxes before clicking on "Submit Vote."
The PLHS choir, under the direction of Ina Soliz, is celebrating its second year as a full-time class elective, and she reports she has "a lot of beginners with a lot of heart" in her group.
Foreigner, formed in 1976, is still together despite many personnel changes. They have been using high school choirs in their shows recently, rehearsing with students over the Internet via Skype.
