Search for Bing Crosby in Kent ahead of Bing at Christmas album launch by Decca Records

There's only three Bing Crosbys in the UK and one of them lives in Kent.

And if it's you you could soon be tucking in to a five-star Christmas lunch at one of the White Christmas singer's favourite restaurants.

Decca Records in London is on the hunt for anyone who was born with name Bing Crosby in celebration of a new album that is coming out next week.

All of those who come forward will be able to enjoy a slap up meal at a London restaurant where the Christmas legend himself used to dine.

They will also be given a commemorative Bing Crosby disc and the chance to meet a special guest to mark the unique occasion.

According to a search carried out by label there are three official namesakes in the country.

Vice President of Decca Records, Tom Lewis, said: “There is Christmas magic in his voice – he will always be the voice of Christmas.

"When we discovered there were possibly three people called Bing Crosby living in the UK, it caused complete pandemonium in the office and we knew we had to do what we could to bring them together”

The album, Bing at Christmas, features his distinctive original vocals over the top of all new orchestral arrangements performed by The London Symphony Orchestra , as well as a special version of the song most synonymous with the season and the singer, ‘White Christmas’, which hit the headlines last month for being the world’s biggest-selling single of all time.
