Williams had 18 gold and three platinum records to his name, but it was his take on Moon River, the theme to 1961's Breakfast at Tifanny's, that made him a star. From 1962 to 1971, he hosted the Andy Williams Show, a popular variety show.
Williams catapulted to fame with several chart-topping singles, including Can't Get Used to Losing You, Happy Heart and Where Do I Begin. He had hits with albums Moon River, Days of Wine and Roses and Love Story.
In 1992, Williams opened the Moon River Theatre in Branson, where he hosted legendary singers Glen Campbell, Pat Boone, The Osmonds, Robert Goulet and Wayne Newton.
Williams was also an avid golfer who hosted the PGA Tour Andy Williams San Diego Open at Torrey Pines from 1968-88. He also hosted the most Grammy telecasts, from 1971 to 1977.
