At the tender age of eight, Susan Cowsill appeared with "family band" The Cowsills on The Ed Sullivan Show. You read that right: she was eight years old.
She may have been a kid, but she works that tambourine and sings like she was born to be in the band with her brothers and mother. You can't take your eyes off of her. Whatever "it factor" was or is, little Susan had it, and in spades. She was a groovy little chick, a real voodoo child. And when that young lady started dancing? Forget it. The girl had moves.
CBS flubbed the audio on the first verse and chorus in this clip. Stick with it; when the mikes get switched on properly, you get to hear the band's remarkable vocals.
