April 27, 2018

At 15 years...1 month...and 13 days old... 

Margaret Annemarie Battavio aka Little Peggy March

became the youngest female singer to have a #1  record in the US

when "I Will Follow Him" reached the top of the Billboard chart

on April 27th of 1963

Peggy's producers stuck the "Little" to her stage name

despite her strenuous objections

They gave her the nickname Little Peggy March 

because she was only 4 ft 10 in tall, she was only 13,

the record she did previously with them was "Little Me" 

and her birthday was in March

"I Will Follow Him" sold over 1 millions copies
