Bing Crosby (1904–1977) was 'n Amerikaanse sanger en rolprentakteur, bekend as neuriesanger en vir die talle komiese flieks waarin hy saam met Bob Hope verskyn het. Hy is veral bekend vir die liedjie White Christmas uit die rolprent Holiday Inn (1942).[1]

Lewensloop[wysig | wysig bron]

Harry Lillis Crosby Jr. is op 3 Mei 1903 in Tacoma in Washington gebore. Hy was Rooms-Katoliek van oortuiging.[2]

Crosby se sangloopbaan het oor nagenoeg vyftig jaar gestrek en hy het meer as 500 miljoen albums wêreldwyd verkoop.[3] Hy is bekend vir die skep van die musiekstyl wat Perry Como, Frank Sinatra en Dean Martin later gekopieer het.[4] Volgend Crosby is die styl deur Al Jolson geïnspireer.[5] Sy liedjie White Christmas, wat deur Irving Berlin geskryf is, het die "beste verkoopte album van alle tye" geword.[6]

Hy maak sy rolprentdebuut in 1930 in The King of Jazz. In 1962 word Crosby die eerste persoon om 'n Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award te ontvang.[7]

Crosby is op 14 Oktober 1977 in Alcobendas, Madrid aan 'n hartaanval oorlede. Hy was 74 jaar oud.
