Crosby started his career as a singer and made it big in the early 1930s with Decca Records. In 1942 he recorded what would become his most famous legacy: the Music/IrvingBerlin song "White Christmas". When it was released, it stayed at #1 on the charts for over 11 weeks. It has remained a perennial Christmas favorite in the United States. In fact, Crosby recorded numerous ChristmasSongs over the years, which is mainly how the younger generation is familiar with him. His album ''Music/MerryChristmas'' (1945), a CoverAlbum full of Christmas-themed songs, has sold over 15 million copies worldwide and is the second-best-selling Christmas album of all time, behind Music/ElvisPresley's ''Elvis' Christmas Album'' (1957).
