The Grayson High School chorus had quite the experience on Saturday performing on stage with Foreigner at Verizon Amphitheatre in Alpharetta. 

The group performed the hit "I Want To Know What Love Is" with the English-American rockers.

"Make some noise for this beautiful choir on stage with us tonight. They are the Grayson High School Chorus from Loganville, Georgia," lead singer Kelly Hansen shouted to the crowd. 

Chorus teacher Michelle Green says she always tells her students to aim high, follow their dreams and try for things that may seem unreachable ... because it could work out.

This worked out.

"The experience was unlike any other. Being a part of something this big was incredible," Green said. "Watching my students perform with a famous band in front of thousands of people has been one of the happiest moments of my career so far. These kids are amazing people and they deserve the best."

Apparently, this is nothing new for the band.

"Throughout this tour, Foreigner will continue their long-standing partnership with The GRAMMY Museum, by which local school choirs are invited to join the band on stage in almost every market they play," a release said on the venue's website. "Through this program over the past several years, the band has raised well into the six figures for music in school programs, and given thousands of students a life-changing experience to rock on stage with one of the most well known bands of all time."

The Grayson High School students were selected after they submitted a video audition through a contest that radio station 97.1 The River was hosting. 

"This opportunity may have seemed unreachable, but we went for it because I told the kids that anything was possible," Green said.

The amphitheatre had some parting words for the choir, as well, when they posted videos to their Facebook page on Sunday:

"Shout out to the Grayson High School Choir last night singing with Foreigner! Maybe we'll see you back on our stage as an opening act or headliner - keep singing, dreams do come true!!"
