Andy Williams has passed away.

The talented singer, most known for his hit song “Moon River”, died on Tuesday after a year-long battle with bladder cancer.

Williams is survived by his second wife Debbie and his three adult children, Robert, Noelle, and Christian, whom he had with his first wife, French dancer Claudine Longet.

The singer had obtained 18 gold albums and three platinum albums throughout his 75-year career.

Andy Williams began his showbiz career with brothers Bob, Dick and Don in the late 1930s as the Williams Brothers quartet.

Andy branched out with his own solo career in 1952 and switched to singing the newest pop music.

The singer had many hit songs in the late 1950s and 60s including “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, “Music to Watch Girls By” and “I Think I Love You”, but his most famous track was “Moon River” from the “Breakfast at Tiffanys” soundtrack.

“Moon River” was never even released as its own single but won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1961.

Andy Williams also starred on his own television program “The Andy Williams Show” on NBC from 1962-1971. He later returned for an annual Christmas Special.

He opened the Andy Williams Moon River Theatre in Missouri in 1992, where he announced his bladder cancer diagnosis in November 2011.
