Michael Buble Releasing Christmas Duet with Bing Crosby

12/3/2012

 

Michael Buble's holiday album Christmas came out last year, but this year, he's releasing a brand-new holiday single featuring a special guest: the late Bing Crosby.
The song is a duet on Crosby's signature tune "White Christmas," and thanks to the magic of special effects, the two will be seen performing it together on Michael's upcoming NBC Christmas special, Home for the Holidays, airing December 10.  The song will hit iTunes that same day.
 
The performance of "White Christmas" that's been interwoven with Michael's is one that Crosby did in 1971 as part of his own Bing Crosby & Sounds of Christmas TV special. In a statement, Michael said, "I have worshipped Bing Crosby since I was six years old.  My family plays Bing’s ‘White Christmas' all year around.  It’s really an honor to sing this beautiful song with him.”  Michael recorded a solo version of "White Christmas" for his holiday album last year.
 
Michael will appear on NBC's Today show and Jimmy Fallon on Monday, and on The Voice December 10.
