A website dedicated to composer Irving Berlin has even created to mark the 130th anniversary of his birth.

The site is described as the first online, dedicated digital resource for Berlin. He penned more than 1,000 songs, including Alexander’s Ragtime Band and White Christmas.

It includes a section that explores his songs, revealing the stories behind them, and photographs from his life. It also provides details of his work in film and theatre as well as information on books and sheet music that are available to buy.

The site has been created by his family and publishers, Concord Music (North America) and Universal Music Publishing Group.
