Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby (May 3, 1903 - October 14, 1977) was an American singer and actor. His singing career was around fifty years long and more than 500 million records of his have been sold worldwide. [1] Crosby is known for creating the style of music that Perry Como, [2] Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin would later copy. Crosby said that he was inspired by Al Jolson. [3]

He sang " White Christmas" and it became "the best-selling record of all time." Irving Berlin wrote this song. [4] In 1962, Crosby became the first person ever to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. [5]

Crosby was a Roman Catholic. [6] He died of a heart attack in Madrid, Spain.
