Eva Narcissus Boyd, better known as Little Eva, was born on this day. She was discovered while working as a babysitter for songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin. The pair had her to record a demo of their latest writing collaboration, ‘The Loco-Motion.’ The song was originally intended for Dee Dee Sharp but after Music producer Don Kirshner heard the demo, he decided to release Boyd’s version.
