Peggy March was discovered at a relative’s wedding – she was 13. Peggy was introduced to record producers Hugo & Luigi who became interested in her immediately. They gave her the nickname “Little Peggy March” because she was only 4ft 10in tall. They recorded her first record “Little Me”.
In 1963, her single “I Will Follow Him” blazed to number one on the American music charts. She was only 15 years old and became the youngest female artist to have a number one hit on the Pop Charts and it also captured the number one spot on the R&B charts.
Internationally, “I Will Follow Him” topped the charts in many Countries, including Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Japan. The song was featured in the film “ Sister Act”.
The record obviously made Peggy a very wealthy young lady – Unfortunately her fortune disappeared. What happened? Where did the money go? We’ll discuss this with Peggy when she visits the Cuz this Saturday 5/14.
