Description

The Andy Williams Biography From obscurity in the tiny town of Wall Lake, Iowa to international superstar… from the security of working with his brothers to the courageous decision to become a solo performer… from a deep and lasting association with the Kennedys to a scandal that enveloped Andy and his family… from his classic television series to his on-going performance schedule at the Andy Williams Moon River Theater in Branson, Missouri… Andy has survived and thrived, constantly reinventing himself to meet the challenges of an unforgiving industry. Narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Kelsey Grammer, this critically-acclaimed production includes exclusive interviews with Andy's brothers, children, wife, and friends Pat Boone, Clive Davis, Merv Griffin, Senator John Glenn, Claudine Longet, Jack Nicklaus, Donny and Marie Osmond, The Osmond Brothers, Robert Wagner, Jonathan Winters and the late Steve Allen. Also showcased are more than 20 classic musical performances such as "Moon River" with an orchestra conducted by Henry Mancini; Williams' first ever recording of "My Mom" at eight-years old; and his emotional performance of "Battle Hymn of the Republic" at Bobby Kennedy's memorial service in 1968. In a career that has spanned eight decades, Andy Williams met every challenge… personal or professional… in his path. Along the way, he created an extraordinary body of work. Andy Williams: The Biography presents the definitive exploration of this incredible life and musical talent. Andy Williams: My Favorite Duets The Andy Williams Show made its debut on NBC in 1962 and stayed on the air for nearly 11 years. For this special, Andy personally selected 15 dazzling duets, full-length performances including "Where Is Love" with Julie Andrews, "Scarborough Fair" with Simon and Garfunkel, "What'd I Say" with Ray Charles and "Over the Rainbow" with Judy Garland. Other stars singing with Andy are Pearl Bailey, Tony Bennett, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis Jr., Phil Harris, Lena Horne, Johnny Mathis, Roger Miller, The Osmond Brothers, Peter, Paul and Mary and The Williams Brothers. All duets have been digitally remastered from the original 2-inch master tapes. Andy hosts this TV special, reliving his most cherished memories and reflecting back on the legendary guests he welcomed on his series. The program also includes newly-shot interviews with Academy Award-winning composer Dave Grusin (Music Director on "The Andy Williams Show").
