Bing Crosby

1903- 1977

Singer

Bing Crosby's soothing baritone brought him success from radio to film to television. Viewed as one of the originators of "pop" music, Crosby had nearly 50 Top-Ten hits in the 1940s, including"White Christmas" and "Swingin' on a Star." "White Christmas" remains the most popular single in recording history with sales of over 30 million. Crosby's acting skills were recognized with an Oscar for 1944's "Going My Way" and he teamed with comedian Bob Hope for a series of memorable "road" films.
