    Andy Williams, the silky-voiced singer whose recording of Moon River brought him fans all over the world, has died at the age of 84.
    Williams died on Tuesday night at his home in Branson, Missouri following a year-long battle with bladder cancer, his publicist said.

    Williams revealed in November 2011 that he was diagnosed with the disease but planned to continue performing.

    This is sad. I remember as a kid watching his Christmas Special with my parents. I think that he was the first one to start showing the Osmonds on T.V. regularly.

    My mom, sister and brother got to meet him after a show in his dressing room quite a few years ago. It was part of a surprise for my mom.

    We used to watch his tv show when I was a kid. He had a lot of kid friendly acts on his show, like the Osmonds and the Jackson 5. Most of all, I remember the sketches in which he dressed like a bear who sold GS cookies. Good, wholesome, family viewing.

    A friend of mine also reminded me about his ex-wife killing that skier. Andy had nothing to do with it, but his name was besmirched during the whole scandal.

    Andy sang "Moon River" better than Audrey Hepburn did (in "Breakfast At Tiffanys").
