La Bouche - Topic

La Bouche is a German-American electronic dance music duo act best known for the dance hits "Be My Lover", "Sweet Dreams", "You Won't Forget Me" and "Tonight is the Night". La Bouche was founded in 1994 by German record producer Frank Farian in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Techno DJ Ulli Brenner and producer Amir Saraf worked together to produce the music for the act while American singer Melanie Thornton and American rapper/singer Lane McCray fronted the act. Thornton departed La Bouche in 2001 continuing her career as a solo singer. Also in 2001, Thornton died in the Crossair Flight 3597 crash in Z├╝rich, Switzerland. As a tribute to the singer, Farian released "In Your Life", an unreleased song featuring vocals recorded earlier with Thornton and McCray. Farian later decided to release a compilation album in 2003 featuring remixes of Thornton's biggest La Bouche hits. McCray continues to tour the world as La Bouche keeping the brand alive. In 2015, McCray pulled Hungarian-born singer Sophie Cairo out of obscurity to be the new official singer of the act. A new official remix titled "Sweet Dreams 2017" was released featuring vocals from McCray and Cairo.
