'National treasure' Andy Williams dies of bladder cancer at age 84



Quote:
Clean-cut crooner Andy Williams, whose performance of "Moon River" became a pop music classic, has died at the age of 84.

"[Williams] passed away last night (Tuesday) at home in Branson, Missouri following a year long battle with bladder cancer," his rep said in a statement to FoxNews.com.

With an easy style and a mellow voice that President Ronald Reagan once termed "a national treasure," Williams proved ideal for television. "The Andy Williams Show," which lasted in various formats from 1957 to 1971, featured Williams alternately performing his stable of easy-listening ballads and bantering casually with his guest stars.

He received 18 gold and three platinum albums over his long career and was nominated for five Grammy awards. He released an autobiography in 2009, "Moon River and Me: A Memoir."

Growing up it wouldn't have been Christmas without watching his Christmas show.

RIP Andy, you will be missed.
