Candi Staton *postponed*
Friday 12th August, 2022
WE ARE SORRY TO ANNOUNCE THAT CANDI STATON @ FBTS 2022 HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
We are hoping to bring Candi to FBTS in 2023.
Four-time Grammy Award nominated singer Candi Staton is one of the most enduring yet underrated artists in music. She has sweetly strutted between several musical genres over the course of her celebrated career. However, dance music has always been her main groove as her iconic tracks “Young Hearts Run Free” and the multi-platinum declaration, “You Got the Love” attest.
The former is a liberating self-preservation anthem that peaked at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard R&B Singles chart in 1976 (No. 2 on the UK Pop chart). The latter is an inspiring spiritual chant that has, through various remixes, hit the British Top 10 Pop Singles chart in 1991, 1997 and again in 2006 – an amazing feat.
Staton’s current album, Unstoppable, a retro soul set which defines Staton’s unstoppable will to raise her voice and share her trials and triumphs as she dances her way into her sixth decade as a recording artist.
