Candida is a 1970 album by Dawn, a group including Tony Orlando, Toni Wine, and Linda November. Orlando was singing under the group name "Dawn" in order to avoid problems with his contract with his other label, CBS. However, after the success of "Candida" and "Knock Three Times", he invited two other singers to become "Dawn", and then "Tony Orlando and Dawn" could tour in support of the songs.[2]
