1963: Peggy March and "I will follow him"


Some of you may remember “I will follow him” from “Sister Act”, the movie with Whoppie Goldberg…..
The original version goes back to 1963:
“On April 27, 1963, Margaret Annemarie Battavio’s very first single, “I Will Follow Him,” reached #1 on the U.S. pop charts.
With her 15th birthday only six weeks behind her, and three more years of high school ahead of her, the singer better known as Little Peggy March became the youngest female performer ever to top the Billboard Hot 100….”

PEGGY MARCH 
I WILL FOLLOW HIM




“Love him, I love him, I love him
And where he goes I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow
I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
There isn’t an ocean too deep A mountain so high it can keep me away
I must follow him, ever since he touched my hand I knew
That near him I always must be 
And nothing can keep him from me He is my destiny
I love him, I love him, I love him And where he goes I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow
He’ll always be my true love, my true love, my true love
From now until forever, forever, forever
I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
There isn’t an ocean too deep
A mountain so high it can keep, keep me away Away from my love
I love him, I love him, I love him
And where he goes I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow
He’ll always be my true love, my true love, my true love
From now until forever, forever, forever
I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
There isn’t an ocean too deep A mountain so high it can keep, 
keep me away Away from my love
Do-do do-do-do do-do-do and where he goes
I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow I know I’ll always love him…”
