I will follow him - José

After the Dutch girl group Luv' split up, all three members tried their hand at a solo career. José Hoebee was by far the most successful, as she racked up several Dutch Top 40 hits. This single, her second solo release, even managed to reach number 1, which is something the other two never managed to do.

'I will follow him' was originally written by Frank Pourcel and Paul Mauriat and recorded by Pourcel as an instrumental piece in 1961. The music was adapted by Arthur Altman and English lyrics were written by Norman Gimbel. This English version was recorded by Little Peggy March in 1963, who reachde number 1 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart with it.
