The song was written and composed by 16-year-old Auckland, New Zealand 
singer-songwriter Grace Kelly and recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. Kelly spent 
much of her formative years in San Jose after her father moved to Silicon 
Valley for an employment opportunity. She wrote the song as a tribute to the 
City and the happy memories she has of growing up in San Jose. 

"This is my love song to San Jose," says Kelly. "I look back at my time here 
with fondness and appreciation for the people and experiences that made me who 
I am. San Jose is full of inspiration and I'm lucky to have lived here."

"We are honored to have a young artist be so inspired by San Jose that she 
dedicated a song to us," says Karolyn Kirchgesler, President & CEO of Visit San 
Jose. "We hope that sharing this song inspires travelers to experience our 
destination for themselves. You can't help but smile when you hear the song and 
watch the video." 

The music video was produced with local crew and led by an acclaimed creative 
team. The song calls out "only in San Jose" experiences like riding VTA light 
rail Downtown, walking through the chic Willow Glen neighborhood, and attending 
concerts at the vista-rich Mountain Winery. The video illustrates the diversity 
of San Jose and highlights key attractions such as Santana Row, The Tech 
Interactive, and the San Jose Sharks. Visit San Jose also worked with Get Down 
Dance Studios, San Jose Japantown businesses and the Sierra Vista Open Space 

The song and video will be used to promote San Jose as a travel destination in 
both business and leisure markets. San Jose is available to stream and download
