Louis Armstrong
 (August 4, 1901 — July 6, 1971),
 nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter
 and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana.
“What a Wonderful World” [1970 Spoken Introduction Version]
 along with Oliver Nelson’s Orchestra is a song written by 
Bob Thiele (as George Douglas) and George David Weiss. 
It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released as a single in 1968.
 Thiele and Weiss were both prominent in the music world
 (Thiele as a producer and Weiss as a composer/performer). 
Armstrong’s recording was inducted 
in the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.
 Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially 
and politically charged climate of everyday life in the United States,
 the song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future,
 with reference to babies being born into the world 
and having much to look forward to.
 The song was initially offered to Tony Bennett, who turned it down. 
Thereafter, it was offered to Louis Armstrong.
Armstrong died of a heart attack in his sleep on July 6, 1971
 at the age of 69, 11 months after playing a famous show 
at the Waldorf-Astoria’s Empire Room.
 He was residing in Corona, Queens, New York City,
 at the time of his death. 
He was interred in Flushing Cemetery, Flushing, in Queens,
 New York City.
 His honorary pallbearers included
 Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Pearl Bailey, 
Count Basie, Harry James, Frank Sinatra, Ed Sullivan,
 Earl Wilson, Alan King, Johnny Carson and David Frost.
 Peggy Lee sang The Lord’s Prayer at the services 
while Al Hibbler sang “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen” 
and Fred Robbins, a long-time friend, gave the eulogy.
Armstrong was posthumously awarded
 the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1972
 by the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. 
This Special Merit Award is presented by vote of the 
Recording Academy’s National Trustees to performers who, 
during their lifetimes, have made creative contributions
 of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording.
 Recordings of Armstrong were inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame,
 which is a special Grammy award established in 1973 
to honor recordings that are at least twenty-five years old,
 and that have “qualitative or historical significance.”
