Doris Day – Legendary Actress and Singer : However, Doris Day‘s personal life, faced with steely resolve, was the very antithesis of how most fans perceived her super-stardom. The studios promoted her in screen roles highlighting her wholesome, vivacious blonde personality.

The Films of Doris Day : In a long career, beginning as a band singer and, as everyone knows, leading to Hollywood super-stardom, she’s had success and tragedy in equal measure before she finally hung up her entertainment spurs and began a new phase of her life as a champion of animal rights.

@last.fm : The band leader Barney Rapp was opening a club and looking for a female vocalist and picked her. He wanted to put her name on the marquee but thought that Kappelhoff was too awkward of a name and they arrived at Day (inspired from the song “Day After Day”).

@Discogs : Singer, actress and dancer, had hits with Les Brown in the 40s as a vocalist, started acting in 1948, after which she balanced her movie career with her singing quite evenly, until the 1960s. She mostly recorded for the Columbia label.
