Peggy March, born Margaret Annemarie Battavio, had a successful career as a pop singer in the 1960s.
She rose to fame with her hit song “I Will Follow Him” when she was only 15.
After her initial success, Peggy continued to record music throughout the 60s and 70s, but her popularity declined.
She eventually moved to Germany in 1969 after marrying Arnie Harris, where she achieved success with German-language recordings.
She even represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1969 and 1975. She won second place both times.
But where is Peggy March now?
Peggy’s Life After Arnie
Peggy lost her husband of 45 years in 2013, just 5 months after the death of her mother.
Arnie suffered from several illnesses, and his condition worsened after he got a head injury from a fall. He was 86 years old at the time.
Following the death of the love of her life, Peggy’s life completely fell apart. She took time off to mourn her losses.
In 2016, she toured Germany alongside her colleagues, Lena Valaitis and Ireen Sheer.
In an interview, Peggy stated that she wants “to carry on – and die on stage,” and ‘carry on’ she has!
So, What Has She Been Up To?
Despite being in her 70s, Peggy still performs and makes music. She has released several albums in recent years, including “Man ist nie zu alt für Träume,” which was released in 2019.
Peggy continues to perform on stage in tours across Germany.
In June 2023, she paid tribute to her late husband by performing her song, “Don’t Worry My Love,” in Dessau, Marienkirche, Germany.
She also appeared on the Beatrice Egli Show in November 2023 to discuss the song’s inspiration.
Peggy is scheduled to go on several tours across Germany in 2024. In an interview, she also mentioned the possibility of performing in the Villages, Florida.
Peggy is also involved in various charity work. She supports several charity groups that help children in need and has performed at benefit concerts for the organization.
On November 18, 2023, she appeared at the “Together For The Children” charity dinner funded by the Patrick Lindner & Hope Kapstadt Foundation.
In addition to her music career, Peggy has also written a book about her life and experiences in the music industry.
The book takes her fans back to 70 years of show business, telling a ‘touching, inspiring, and humorous’ story of Peggy’s fight to fit in and grow in a world dominated by men.
She wrote the book “I Will Follow Me,” alongside Nina Faecke. The autobiography was first released in 2023.
