The Amazing DEE CLARK of “RAINDROPS” Born this Day 1938
Dee Clark was born this day in 1938. Like so many other great singers of the 1950s, Delecta "Dee" Clark got his start with some very talented doo wop groups - the Kool Gents and the Delegates. As a solo performer, DEE Clark scored several big hits - "Hey Little Girl (in the High School Sweater)," "How about That," "Just Keep It Up," and the biggest one "Raindrops." Give a listen to "Raindrops" by clicking below, and appreciate the man's amazing vocal range. It's a masterpiece. Sadly, Clark was not able to make a successful transition to soul music in the middle 1960s, and eventually died penniless in 1990 at the age of only 52.
