You know the song. Everybody knows the song.
I wanna know what love is.
I want you to show me.
I wanna feel what love is.
I know you can show me.
Now, “I Want to Know What Love Is,” the 1984 chart-topping classic from the English-American rock band Foreigner, has been repackaged with a new music video and charitable mission: to help Shriners Hospitals for Children.
All proceeds from each download will benefit Shriners Hospitals, giving the lyrics to that song new meaning and intersecting with “Love to the rescue”—the Shriners slogan.
“We are incredibly grateful to have Foreigner on board with us for this project,” said Armand Viscarri, public relations specialist at Shriners Hospitals for Children—Houston. “They have been involved with our hospital system for 10 years and their collaboration with the song has left us with a monumental impact.”
Shriners Hospitals for Children is a nationwide network of hospitals that provide specialized care to pediatric patients with conditions including burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate. Locally, Shriners Hospitals for Children—Houston is an orthopedic specialty center in the heart of the Texas Medical Center and Shriners Hospitals for Children—Galveston is a verified pediatric burn care center that specializes in acute, reconstructive and rehabilitative care for children with burns and other soft tissue conditions. Both hospitals are Texas Medical Center institutions.
All hospitals within the Shriners network provide care regardless of the ability of families to pay, so they rely heavily on philanthropy such as Foreigner’s gift.
“We want to see our children being children and never want to leave a family with a financial burden,” Viscarri said. “Donations allow us to fulfill that mission and play an integral part in the life of children from all around the world that come to us for that care.”
Previously, band members have donated $1 per concert ticket sold to Shriners, but wanted to do even more.
Visit showthemlove.org to download the music video, donate, view additional details about the collaboration or pre-order “Greatest Hits of Foreigner Live in Concert”—which includes a special recording with Shriners children. The entire proceeds of that album also will benefit Shriners Hospitals.
