Doris Day - 1922 - 2019
Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff (aka Doris Day) was born April 3, 1922 - died May 13, 2019.
Her name change was due to Barney Rapp, an orchestra leader employing Doris Kappelhoff in 1939, who said 'Kappelhoff' was too long for the theatre marquee, and as part of Doris' repertoire was the song "Day After Day," at his suggestion, Doris Kappelhoff became Doris Day.
