Eva Narcissus "Little Eva" Boyd
Birth: Jun. 29, 1943
Death: Apr. 10, 2003

Singer. Born in Bellhaven, North Carolina, at the age of 19, while earning extra money as a babysitter, she was asked by the writing team of Carole King and Gerry Goffin to record a song they had written. The song was called "Locomotion' and became a big hit for Boyd who changed her name to 'Little Eva.' In 1962 she recorded the song, "Keep Your Hands Off My Baby" and in 1963 she recorded, "Locomotion." In 1963 she also recorded the song, "Let's Turkey Trot" which was a Top 20 hit, and one of her last. She sang backup for the likes of Ben E. King and ‘The Drifters'. She continued her singing career until illness forced her to retire in October 2001. (bio by: K)
