YOU MAY LIVE IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY BECAUSE OF THE KING SISTERS.

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY        2011

In the middle of World War II, when thousands of draftees and volunteers were stationed, or passed through, California, the King Sisters recorded their version of the popular song "The San Fernando Valley."  The four women's a capella version of the song was a big hit, and helped to create the romantic image of the Valley as the place in which to settle down when the GIs came home.
