Then four years later, on this date, her song went number one on the charts.
Four years later, she had another big hit, "Sweet Nothin's". It didn't go number one, but did make it to number 4 in early 1960. During that decade, she earned 40 hits. I sure don't remember that many. But I do recall a couple of Christmas hits she had, like "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree"
She was born on December 11, 1944 in Atlanta, Georgia. She only grew to a height of 4'-9" tall. Here is a more recent picture of her:
I bet you all, if you are anywhere near my age, will go through the day humming some of her songs, or if not humming them, they will be going through you mind. Dang, I can almost hear her singing "Sweet Nothin's". Now, have a great day, you hear?
