Q. Which singer was known as Little Miss Dynamite?

A. Brenda Lee (born Brenda Mae Tarpley; December 11, 1944) is an American performer and the top-charting solo female vocalist of the 1960s. She sang rockabilly, pop and country music, and had 47 US chart hits during the 1960s, and is ranked fourth in that decade surpassed only by Elvis Presley, the Beatles and Ray Charles. She is known for her 1960 hit “I’m Sorry”, and 1958’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”, which has become a Christmas standard.

At 4 ft 9 inches tall (approximately 145 cm), she received the nickname “Little Miss Dynamite” in 1957, when she was 12, after recording the song “Dynamite” and was one of the earliest pop stars to have a major contemporary international following.
