Foreigner rocks for at risk kids

From Toby Herschler - email

A blast from the past is making a brighter future for local kids.

Singer Kelly Hansen from the legendary rock band Foreigner was in Tucson Tuesday for a fundraiser for Lapalomakids.org.

Helping at-risk children might seem like stretch from the music stage, but the cause is close to Hansen's heart. His father works with at-risk children.

Foreigner plays a benefit concert for lapalomakids.org at the Tucson Music Hall on September 21.

The band has sold more than 50-million albums worldwide with a remarkable string of hits that were rock radio staples from 1977 through 1987.
