Grammy-winning composer, singer and music producer Mitch Miller has died, aged 99. He passed away in New York City's Lenox Hill Hospital on Saturday, July 31 after a short illness. A record executive at Columbia Records, Miller made hits with singers including Rosemary Clooney, Patti Page, Johnny Mathis and Tony Bennett.

He was also the star of popular 1960s U.S. TV program "Sing Along With Mitch". As an oboist, Miller played in numerous orchestras, including one put together in 1934 by George Gershwin. In 2000, he was lauded with a special Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award. Miller is survived by two daughters, a son, two brothers, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Miller made a career switch from playing to producing in the late 1940s by becoming A&R (artists and repertoire) director at Mercury Records, a small label that he turned into a major force in the industry.
