George Gershwin is quoted as saying “Irving Berlin is the greatest songwriter that ever lived” and Broadway choreographer and director Jerome Kern famously said “Irving Berlin has no place in American music – he is American Music”.  Born May 11, 1888, Berlin’s songwriting career spanned decades and produced some of the most famous songs for some of the most famous performers.
