Biography

The Peters Sisters were a well-built African-American singing trio from Santa Monica, California, where they first sang together in churches, local amateur shows and social functions. Then in 1937, while making a hopeful, though unpaid, appearance at a Hollywood night club, they were spotted by comedian Eddie Cantor who immediately signed them up to appear in the film Ali Baba Goes to Town (1937).
