Dee Clark (November 7, 1938 - December 7, 1990, b. Delecta Clark) was a male R&B/soul singer with a clear, soaring tenor and a great deal of crossover appeal who became famous during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Best known for the lovelorn romantic ballad, "Raindrops" (1961), which became a Top 5 hit on both the Pop/Rock and R&B charts as well as an international success, his many other hits, which continued through 1963, also include "Nobody But You" (1958), "Just Keep It Up" (1959) and "Hey Little Girl" (1959). Before launching a solo career in 1957, Clark had been a member of The Kool Gents, a Chicago-based group that was famous locally.
