Bing Crosby net worth: Bing Crosby was an American singer and actor who had a net worth equal to $50 million inflation adjusted dollars. He was born at 1112 North J Street in Tacoma, Washington on 3rd May 1903. His family later migrated to Spokane, Washington in 1906. A house was built by his father at 508 E. Sharp Ave in 1913. He emerged as a leader in record sales, motion picture grosses and even radio ratings between 1934AD to 1954AD. Since his early career progressed during the era of technical recording innovations, it had the consequent impact on him to have laid-back singing style. His singing style influenced many artists later.

He also had tremendous impact on the development of the postwar recording company. At that time, he was working for NBC and hence had desire to record his shows despite broadcast networks would not permit recording. The problem was generated because the recording at the time lacked quality and was not on par with live broadcast sound quality. During his stay in Europe at the time of war, he had come across tape recording session whose patents were possessed by The Crosby Research Foundation. The company invented equipment and recording techniques.

He joined ABC after leaving NBC since he found NBC uninterested to record at the time. ABC was more interested on his new ideas. Hence he pre-recorded his radio shows and mastered commercials onto magnetic tape for the first time ever in history. For his role in 1944 movie" Going My Way", he won an Academy award. It was the year 1963 when he received his first Grammy Award nomination.
