CBS LA reports that singer Andy Williams has passed away on Tuesday in his Branson, MO. home after a year-long battle with bladder cancer. He was 84.
With 18 Gold albums and three Platinum, Williams had no shortage of hits during his career as a singer, variety TV host and live performer. Today, we’re remembering this legendary singer with some of his biggest hits of his career.
“Moon River” — Known widely as the blue-eyed crooner’s signature song, “Moon River” was originally sung by Audrey Hepburn in the film Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which it also won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1961. Williams’ version became the most well known, and Williams even named his Branson venue the Moon River Theatre after the song.
“Can’t Get Used To Losing You” — Released in 1963, this became one of Williams’ biggest charting hits peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard charts and spending four weeks at No.1 on the Easy Listening charts.
“Most Wonderful Time Of The Year” — It’s not quite the Christmas season yet, but it’s hard to imagine celebrating the season without hearing Williams’ classic holiday tune.
