The Irving Berlin classic “White Christmas” was originally performed by Bing Crosby on his Kraft Music Hall radio program on Christmas Day, 1941. It was officially recorded for Decca Records in May 1942 and re-recorded in 1947. Soon the recording reached iconic status and went on to become the best-selling record of all time.
Michael Buble’ recorded the song last year as part of his extraordinarily successful Christmas album which was the second best-selling album of 2012 (following Adele).
