Clean-Cut 'Moon River' Crooner Andy Williams Dies

The television host and singer who had a hit with his rendition of "Moon River" died last night. Andy Williams was 84. Williams' clean-cut, wholesome image ran counter to many performers of the 1960s and he drew frequent comparisons to Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. He also gained popularity hosting the Andy Williams Show and a televised Christmas special. Williams' publicist says he died following a year-long battle with bladder cancer.
