Bing Crosby

Happy birthday, Bing Crosby! Today marks the 115th birthday of the legendary star.

He was born Henry Lillis Crosby, Jr. on May 3, 1903 in Tacoma, Washington. The fourth of seven children, Crosby loved to listen to music on his phonograph as a child and enjoyed reading the comedy feature “The Bingville Bugle” in the Sunday edition of the Spokesman-Review. His love for the comic earned him the nickname “Bingo from Bingville,” which eventually shortened to “Bing.”

Crosby’s signature voice made him one of the best selling recording artists of the 20th century and one of the most popular film stars of the era.
