FILE–Singer Andy Williams is shown in this Nov. 30, 1998 file photo in Branson, Mo. Williams is glad he got a second opinion after a doctor advised him to consider throat surgery. After a node was found last October on the singer’s voice, a doctor told him to stop singing. Williams sought a second opinion from doctors at UCLA. A young doctor there, who happened to be a fan, gave Williams the answer he was looking for: Take several months off to see if the growth subsides. He did, and it did. Williams is about to begin his ninth season at the Moon River Theatre. Starting Sept. 8, 2000, he shares the stage with Glen Campbell. (AP Photo/John S. Stewart, File)
