Happy Birthday to Bing Crosby, the ‘Voice of America’

Harry Lillis Crosby, known to fame as “Bing” Crosby, was born May 3, 1903, and went on to be one of the biggest stars ever of song, screen, and radio. While most Americans seem to have forgotten his name, his recording of the iconic song “White Christmas” is still the number one selling song of all time by a wide margin, and in his heyday he was in a class all his own. So today we remember the Irish-American Catholic whose charm, singing, and personality won the hearts of generations of his fellow Americans, and gave him the title “Voice of America.” 

Bing Crosby should be resurrected and remembered today. He was certainly not a perfect man, and he had his struggles and faults like all of us, but (particularly as he grew older) he was a faithful husband, affectionate father, beloved friend, wonderful singer, practicing Catholic, and talented star.

In the Golden Age of Hollywood—particularly in the 1940s—there was no one who came close to the popularity of Bing Crosby. He was so iconic that he was nicknamed the “Voice of America,” and the “most admired man alive” by Americans in 1948.

Listen to his White Christmas.
