Andy Williams Biography

This widespread radio exposure brought the boys a considerable following which eventually caught the attention of Bing Crosby. With Crosby, Andy and his brothers made their first professional recording, "Swinging on a star," which became a tremendous hit in 1944. In 1947, Andy and his brothers teamed up with comedienne Kay Thompson (who also wrote the popular children's book series Eloise") for successful, trend setting nightclub act. Thompson and the brothers spent the next few years performing all over the United States and in Europe. But it all came to an end in 1951 as the group disbanded and each brother went their own way. Andy chose to move to New York and continue to persue his vocal career.

Our family will be praying for Andy. But wanted to bring one thing to his attention and pray maybe he has already done it. BUT a lady in our subdivision was diagnosed with bladder cancer, stage 3. Somehow was able to be seen at Mayo in Minn. soon afterward and the second opinion changed to the dx. to stage 1, no surgery needed.
