Hosting The Andy Williams Show from 1962 to 1971, and later developing The Moon River Theatre in Branson Missouri (named after the song he is most known for singing -- Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini’s “Moon River”), Andy Williams and his smooth voice left an impression on the music world that will not be forgotten.
Collectively, the Osmonds have sold more than 100 million records, earning them 59 gold and platinum hits worldwide, and are the recipients of numerous entertainment awards.
In 2016, Jimmy Osmond celebrated 50 years in the entertainment industry, debuting, as did his older brothers before him, on The Andy Williams Show at a very early age.
After Andy Williams passed in 2012, Osmond took over Williams’ Branson theatre as a promise to his friend and mentor to keep the legacy alive.
This performance is made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
