Jimmy Holiday (24 July 1934, Sallis, Mississippi – 15 February 1987, Iowa City) was an American R&B singer and songwriter. He recorded for Everest Records in the 1960s and later moved to the New Orleans label Minit Records. His debut recording "How Can I Forget" reached the top ten on the R&B charts in 1963.
Holiday's best-known composition is "Put a Little Love in Your Heart", co-written with Jackie DeShannon and Randy Myers. In the USA, it was DeShannon's highest-charting hit, reaching #4 on the Hot 100 in August 1969 and #2 on the Adult Contemporary charts. In late 1969, the song reached number one on South Africa's hit parade.
