What a Wonderful World" is a pop ballad written by Bob Thiele (as "George Douglas") and George David Weiss. It was first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released in 1967 as a single, which topped the pop charts in the United Kingdom. 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.

Album: Hello, Dolly! (1964). Four years later Satchmo also became the oldest artist to record a UK when "What A Wonderful World" hit the top spot. When Armstrong was asked about his new song, he replied, "It sure feels good to be up there with those Beatles.

Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Louis Armstrong’s career lasted over 50 years and his legacy continues to influence fans and artists all over the world. During his career, Armstrong appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows, wrote books and letters, and captivated the world with his gravely voice and impeccable trumpet playing one performance at a time. Armstrong conquered The Beatles with Hello, Dolly! in 1964, leading him to record a string of Dolly knock-offs throughout the succeeding years with varying results. During that time, the United States grew into a more fractured nation with intense, sometimes violent struggles over issues such as Civil Rights and the war in Vietnam. In 1970, Armstrong returned to What a Wonderful World for the album Louis Armstrong and His Friends, remaking the song with an updated, funkier arrangement by Oliver Nelson.
