In 1968, Warwick had never been to San Jose and didn’t think much of the song. But after the iconic singer recorded “Do You Know The Way To San Jose?” and the song became a huge hit, the 73-year old singer says with a laugh that she “cried all the way to the bank.” This week Warwick is heading back to San Jose to be dubbed the city’s “global ambassador of goodwill.” She’ll sing that song, as part of an international Sister Cities conference on Friday, Aug. 1, 2014.
