Kitty Kallen (1921-2016)

Kitty Kallen, the singer who took “Little Things Mean a Lot” to the top of the pop charts in 1954, has died at 94.

The song was one of the two biggest hits for the Richmond songwriting duo of composer Carl Stutz and lyricist Edith Lindeman. The other was “Red Headed Stranger,” around which singer Willie Nelson devised a best-selling album in 1975.
