Who is Delilah from ‘Hey there Delilah’?
Hey There Delilah has been trending all over again and it has made many wondered what happened to the real Delilah?
The girl in the song is Delilah DiCrescenzo. Delilah is a cross-country runner and graduate of Columbia University, as reported by Teen Vogue. If you have heard the song, it will make you think Tom Higgenson, lead guitarist of the band Plain White T’s, and Delilah had a relationship that one dreams about.
However, that was not true. The two never dated. In reality, Delilah was in a relationship with someone else when this song was written. In an interview, she opened up about the experience of having a song written about her. “When I’m at the gym, it’s playing; when I’m at the pool, it’s playing. Part of me wants to scream at the top of my lungs that it’s about me. Another part of me wants to cower and say it’s not,” she recalled.
She admitted there was a pressure of what people would think following the song as Delilah revealed she “was nervous that I’d let Tom’s fans down. They’d be disappointed to hear I have a boyfriend. Every girl would want a song written about her, and they’d think I was ungrateful and rude to deny Tom. I felt pressure to live up to those expectations.”
Where is Delilah now?
People had seen Delilah during the Grammys. She decided to tag along with the rest of the band. However, there are no recent pictures of her. Delilah keeps her social media private. It looks like after becoming the center of attention for the song, Delilah wants to maintain a low profile.
