But even before his solo career, he found acclaim when he and his three siblings formed the Williams Brothers quartet — and as such, appeared with Bing Crosby on the hit “Swinging on a Star.”
Much more than just a singer, Williams was, too, a notable TV personality. In fact, Andy had his own television variety program — The Andy Williams Show — which aired from 1962 to 1971, and the talented man hosted the Grammy Awards for seven years straight in the 1970s.
Born on December 3, 1927, Andy Williams died on September 25, 2012 after fighting a year-long battle with bladder cancer. He was 84 years old.
