Andy Williams Dies At 84 [VIDEO]

Andy Williams, known for "The Andy Williams Show," his hit song “Moon River,” and Christmas albums and television specials has passed away at the age of 84. Williams passed away Wednesday morning at his home in Branson, Mo. Mr. Williams had been battling bladder cancer, and passed away due to complications with that cancer.

Mr. Williams earned 18 gold and three platinum albums and was nominated for Grammy Awards five times, but he never had a gold single. (His version of “Moon River” was not released as a single, although versions by Mr. Mancini and Jerry Butler reached the Top 20.) His biggest hit single — and his only No. 1 — was “Butterfly,” an uncharacteristically rocklike 1957 number in which he was instructed to imitate Elvis Presley.
