The 20th-century legend
Bing Crosby is unarguably one of the most influential and popular multimedia star of the first half of the 20th century.
He was born May 3rd, 1903 and died October 14, 1977. Crosby had a deep baritone voice, and he blessed us with many songs that filled our hearts with emotions during the holiday season. Classics such as ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘White Christmas’ were among them.
It is a fact that ‘White Christmas’ is the best-selling Christmas single worldwide, and thanks to technology, this generation gets to experience a performance of this classic first hand by Bill and one of our own.
Technology brings everyone together
Modern technology has advanced so much so that things that were deemed impossible are now seen as the norm.
Four-time Grammy award winner Michael Buble, also popularly known as the ‘modern crooner’, owes his singing style to the likes of Crosby, Sinatra, and Cole. He named Crosby as an inspiration.
His songs cause nostalgia for those that remember the classic jazz era. Michael Buble has recently had a dream come true, with the help of technology: He was able to perform alongside his hero, Bing Crosby.
Though decades apart, these two amazing vocalists gave a spine-chilling performance.
The time-breaking performance
Michael Buble plays back Bing Crosby's Christmas special from 1971 and finds a way to make Crosby appear on the TV set stage.
Michael then convinces Crosby to sing ‘White Christmas’ with him, saying it would be a wonderful experience for him.
Crosby starts the popular song, and Michael joins in, the two have the most potent blend of voices. They deliver a fantastic performance and snow falls.
Crosby disappears back into the TV set, and Michael delivers the ending of the song. He has the crowd loving every inch of the performance and applauding him.
Minds are blown
The performance has raised the Christmas spirit everywhere. It has people commending Michael's effort and applauding how the two singers are perfect together.
We loved seeing this performance, and the artistic blend of generations it represents.
