Orleans Larry Hoppen

Larry Hoppen, singer for Orleans and the voice behind such hits as “Still the One” and “Dance with Me,” died on Tuesday (July 24). The cause of death is under investigation. Hoppen was 61.

Orleans was founded in Woodstock, New York, in 1972. The band’s best-known album, 1976’s Waking and Dreaming, yielded the chart-hits “Love Takes Time,” “Still the One” and “Forever.” Hoppen had been continuing to tour with Orleans, along with his brothers, Lance and Lane. The group was scheduled to perform this Friday (July 27) on Fox TV’s nationally televised Fox & Friends’ All-American Concert Series.

In addition to his work with Orleans, Hoppen performed or recorded with such notable figures as Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Levon Helm and Chet Atkins. He is survived by his wife, Patricia Hoppen; two daughters, Claire and Maeve; his brothers, Lance and Lane; and his sister, Lynda. “Words cannot express the depths of my sorrow,” said Lance Hoppen, in a statement.
