Andy Williams has died.
The 84-year-old singer passed away at his home in Branson, Missouri, on Tuesday night.
He had been battling bladder cancer for the last year.
The star's representative has confirmed his passing and his family have asked that any fans donate money to the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network rather than send flowers.
No further information has been released.
Andy is survived by his wife Debbie and his children Robert, Noelle and Christian.
He rose to prominence as a vocalist in the '60s and is best known for his song Moon River. The star made 18 gold-selling records during his career, and three which went platinum.
The singer announced he was suffering from cancer while on stage at the Moon River Theater in Missouri, which he owned.
He thanked fans for their support and insisted he would be fighting the illness with everything he had.
