Black and white publicity photograph of a young Andy Williams.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Hawthorne Junior High School/Best wishes/Andy Williams/April 10, 1967". B/w, 8x10. Williams (1927-2012), the holder of 18 gold and three platinum records, was part of radio's Williams Brothers Quartet at age 8, featured with Bing Crosby and others. After the quartet disbanded in 1951, Andy became a regular performer on Steve Allen's Tonight Show. His first Top 10 hit, "Canadian Sunset", was followed by a string of hits including "Butterfly", "Lonely Street" and "The Hawaiian Wedding Song", which bought his first Grammy nomination. Williams continued regular TV appearances, including his own summer replacement show. Beginning in 1962, he began turning out hits for Columbia Records, including "Can't Get Used to Losing You" and "Moon River", the Oscar-winning song from Breakfast at Tiffany's that became his signature song after he performed it at the Academy Awards ceremony. The song was No. 1 for 16 weeks. On September 16, 1963, The Andy Williams Show, which would run until 1972, debuted. The variety show would win three Emmy Awards for Best Musical/Variety (1966, 1967, and 1969) and launch Williams' classic Christmas specials. During this time, Williams also toured, opening Caesar's Palace in 1966. In 1992, he opened the Andy Williams Moon River Theater in Branson, Missouri, becoming the first non-country performer to take up permanent residence there. Inscription and date are signed by Williams with a different pen. Minor surface scratches not visible head on. Otherwise, fine condition.
