Eva Narcissus Boyd, also known as “Little Eva” was an American pop singer known for her smash hit, “The Loco-Motion.”  Little Eva made her way to stardom while working as a maid and babysitter for singers Carole King and Gerry Goffin. The couple noticed Eva’s dancing and singing style and wrote “The Loco-Motion” for her as a demo. Once recorded, the song hit number one on the charts in 1962. The song sold over one million copies and was awarded a gold disc.
