Did You Know?


Got her "start" in the music business as the housekeeper for songwriter Carole King. She would sing as she worked in King's apartment, and King was impressed with her voice. King brought her to producer Don Kirshner at Dimension Records, who auditioned her and then commissioned King to write a song for her. The result was the #1 hit "The Loco-Motion".
