La Bouche

La Bouche Biography

La Bouche was a Eurodance act based in Germany, fronted by black American-German singer Melanie Thornton. Their most successful hit "Be My Lover" was top 10 across Europe and peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1996. The group was the brainchild of German producer Frank Farian. In 2000, after Melanie Thornton left the group to pursue a solo career, she was replaced by Natascha Wright with a single called "All I Want". This track didn't chart well, though, and the group disbanded. Meanwhile, Melanie Thornton was achieving large sales with "Wonderful Dream" and was chosen by Coca Cola to perform the theme song for a Christmas Commercial. While promoting this,Melanie Thornton was killed in a plane crash near Zurich, Switzerland, November 24th 2001.

In April 2002, Farian compiled songs from Thornton's album along with selections from the first and second La Bouche albums into a best of collection entitled The Best of La Bouche (feat. Melanie Thornton).

In November 2002, one year following Thornton's death, Farian prepared a tribute single entitled "In Your Life", a song which had been previously unreleased. Farian combined her vocals with Kayo Shekoni from Le Click, who provided additional vocals to complete the mix. The single was released worldwide in 2002 and in the U.S. in 2003. It peaked at number 9 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart.

In 2007 a 3-track EP was released on iTunes under the name 'Le Click' titled "Let's Click: 90's Dance Classics." These are 3 tracks from the S.O.S & A Moment Of Love album recording sessions that didn't make the cut.
