R.I.P. Andy Williams

Andy Williams, whose soothing baritone and relaxed performing style made him one of America’s top pop vocalists and a popular TV variety-show host in the 1960s when he recorded hits such as ‘Moon River’ and ‘Days of Wine and Roses’ has died. He was 84.

Moon River singer Andy Williams passes away aged 84

Williams, who announced in late 2011 that he had been diagnosed with bladder cancer, died on 26th September at his home, his family announced.

The Iowa-born Williams began singing professionally as a boy with his three older brothers in the 1930s, and he went solo when the quartet broke up in the early `50s.

Christmas won’t be the same without you Andy. Sleep tight.
