George Ranch High group to accompany classic rock band
If you are going to run a ranch, you better have a better-than-OK Chorale.
Last Friday, the George Ranch High School Chorale backed up for legendary rock and roll band Foreigner at the Arena Theatre in Houston.
The Chorale earned the honor after entering a contest through Houston radio station KKRW (The Arrow). George Ranch Choir Director Chris Cuellar sent a video of his group performing the song they will sing backup on — “I Want to Know What Love Is,” which was the group’s biggest hit, making it to No. 1 in 1985.
After that, the Chorale’s fans took over, voting on The Arrow’s website, hoping to send George Ranch to the stage. Last Friday, Cuellar’s phone rang and the digital readout said “ClearChannel,” which is The Arrow’s parent company.
“I just knew they were going to say, ‘thanks for playing, but we’ve chosen someone else,’” Cuellar said. “I couldn’t believe we’d won.”
