Andy Williams has died from bladder cancer at the age of 84 on Wednesday, according to a statement released by publicist Paul Shefrin.

Williams had been battling with cancer since last year. In November 2011 Williams confirmed his condition during an appearance at his own Moon River Theatre in Branson, Mo.

Williams had a very successful life in show business with ventures in music, film and television.

He was perhaps most famous for his two platinum Christmas albums The Andy Williams Christmas Album and Merry Christmas which included staples “White Christmas” and “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”.

Williams also hosted a variety television show from 1962-1971 called The Andy Williams Show.

He also sang the national anthem prior to Super Bowl VII in Chicago, Illinois.

With a soothing and mellow voice, President Richard Nixon called him a “national treasure”.

Williams is survived by his wife, Debbie, and his three children, Robert, Noelle and Christian.
