Entertainer Andy Williams has passed away at the age of 84, following a year-long battle with cancer. Williams died at his home in Branson, Mo., Tuesday night, according to reports.

Williams was a regular performer on The Tonight Show With Steve Allen before landing a recording contract and began a career that earned him five Grammy nominations, and 10 gold and three platinum albums. Williams' biggest hit was the Oscar-winning "Moon River" from Breakfast at Tiffany's, which ultimately became the song most associated with him.
