Ray Simpson Life

Ray Simpson (born January 15, 1950) is an American singer best known as a former lead singer and "Cop" of the disco supergroup Village People, having been in that role for more than 30 years.

Victor Willis, the original lead singer, was replaced by him in August 1979 as the Cop, a position he'd hold until 1982, and then again in 2017 until Willis' return to Willis in 2017.

Simpson had been doing back-up singing for Village People in the first two years, which is why he was hired (on very short notice) to join the band as Willis' departure. Simpson was featured in the Village People film Can't Stop the Music, which was released in 1980. Born in Bronx, he is a native of New York and majoring in English and minoring in music. Valerie Simpson, the brother of the husband-and-wife songwriting crew and recording artists Ashford & Simpson, was a member of the family and a Simpson.

The pair performed with many Motown musicians, including Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell and later Diana Ross, as well as other non-Motown artists, like Chaka Khan and The Brothers Johnson.

They also found success as recording artists, most notably with their albums "Found A Cure" (1979) and "Solid" (1984).

Ray Simpson spent many years with the pair.

Simpson also released Tiger Love, a solo recording album prior to joining Village People.

Personal life

Simpsons' interests include sports, backgammon, bicycling, writing poetry, and driving fancy cars. He and his daughter Alayna live in Teaneck, New Jersey, and he and his father are married to Leslie.

Ray is a member of Sixuvus Ltd (the Village People corporation), and is a Director of the Board of Directors.
