Peggy March (born Margaret Annemarie Battavio, March 8, 1948,Lansdale, Pennsylvania) is an American pop singer. She is primarily known for her 1963 million-selling song "I Will Follow Him".
She was discovered at age thirteen singing at her cousin's wedding and was introduced to the record producer partnership Hugo & Luigi. They gave her the nickname Little Peggy March because she was only 4 ft 9 in (1.45 m) tall, she was only 13, the record she did with them was "Little Me," and her birthday was in March.
On April 24, 1963, her single "I Will Follow Him" soared to number one on theU.S. charts. She recorded the song in early January 1963 and it was released on January 22, when she was only 14. March became the youngest female artist with a number one hit, at 15, in late April 1963, a record that still stands for the Billboard Hot 100. The recording also reached number one inAustralia, New Zealand, South Africa, Japan, and Scandinavia. It was a translation of the French song "Chariot" recorded a year earlier by Petula Clark.
