Profile of the Day: Bobby Darin
Remember the song “Splish Splash”? On May 14, 1936, singer Bobby Darin was born in the Bronx, New York. Darin recorded his first mega hit “Splish Splash” in 1958, and followed with a string of best selling records that brought him world fame.
He was raised by his grandparents, who he believed were his parents for most of his life. When his mother became pregnant at the age of 16, the family hatched the plan to pass off the baby as the child of his maternal grandparents. He grew up believing his mother was his older sister and didn’t learn of their actual relationship until he was 32. Sadly, his life was cut short when he passed at the age of 37.
