(This contest is not open to adult choirs.)  By Wednesday, May 15, 2024, we need a video (does not need to be overly professional) of your school's choir singing any Foreigner song. Just know, the song you’d be singing at the show is “I Want To Know What Love Is.” So if this song would be easier for the class, all the better, but it isn’t mandatory.
