"God Bless America" 
 
Los Alamitos and Seal Beach are home to military installations where hundreds of men and women perform important jobs to serve and protect the United States of America.  Sometimes, despite such close proximity, we get so busy with our own lives that we forget these troops, and all the soldiers in our armed forces, even though they never forget about us.
 
That’s why, at the All-District Choral Festival held on March 6 at Cottonwood Church, our combined choirs sang the most heartfelt song of the year as a tribute to   our most important audience of the year.
 
We invite you to enjoy this performance of “God Bless America” featuring soloist Alexia del Alcazar.
 
This will make you proud to be an American.
 
This will make you proud to be associated with the Los Alamitos High School choir program. 
 
Thank you to all of our soldiers near and far for keeping our nation and our families safe.  For those who serve, we hope you keep this song close to your heart, and that no matter where your duties are, you come home safe and sound to your own families.
