“Moon River” was originally performed by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Not only did the Henry Mancini-composed number win an Academy Award for Best Original Song, but also took home 1962 Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
Andy Williams’ rendition is probably the most well known, but numerous artists over the years have covered it including Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Sarah Vaughan and Barbra Streisand to name a few. Frank Ocean is just the latest to cover the iconic track. It’s a beautiful rendition at that. Give it a spin below.
