R.I.P. Mr. Williams. In my head, I'm hearing, "It's the most wonderful time of the year". I got to see one of your Christmas shows live, and it was great.

His television Christmas specials were amazing! Even as a little kid I knew how talented he was, not to mention his guests---like the Osmonds. These folks could really sing---such beautiful harmonies. R.I.P. Mr. Williams.

RIP Mr. Williams you will be missed,.


I never heard any of his regular hit songs just his Christmas songs, but man when you think of Christmas and Christmas songs to me there a handful of singers that comes to mind .


Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Gene Autry and Andy Williams.

What a great voice...I came across a 45 record of his "speak softly" at my home a couple of days ago, almost tossed it, then changed my mind and kept it. Glad I did :). now listening to his songs on you Tube. RIP Andy.
