Entertainer Bobby Darin was one of the most influential artists of the late 1900s. Darin started out as a demo writer and singer at the Brill Building. His first hit records “Splish Splash” and “Dream Lover” put him on the map as a composer in 1958 as well. Later that year, he released That’s All, the LP that included “Mack the Knife”, a work of art that earned him the 1959 Record of the Year and Best New Artist Grammy Awards. Darin was also a distinguished actor, starring in thirteen films and receiving an Oscar nomination for his performance in Captain Newman, M.D. (1963). He also received a Golden Globe Award for Most Promising Male Newcomer for his role in Pressure Point. Darin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.
