Tony Orlando

WHO IS HE: With the help of his backup duo Dawn, New York native Tony Orlando became one of the biggest pop stars during the early 1970s. His hit singles include “Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Ole Oak Tree,” “Halfway to Paradise,” “Bless You” “Happy Times (Are Here to Stay),” “Knock Three Times,” “Candida” and “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You.)” Orlando announced his retirement in 1977, and Dawn disbanded. The retirement proved to be short lived, however, and Orlando went back to work as a solo artist, although he never again achieved the same level of success he did with Dawn.
