Candi Staton - FUV Live - 2014
Although often labeled as an American soul artist, Candi Staton has released music in several different genres including gospel, blues and disco throughout her career, which began in the '60s. She’s just released her 27th album, Life Happens, and Staton described it as an anthology of her life. Although the new songs reflect on her past, she still aims to move forward, continuing to tour around the world even at 74 years old. Staton recently stopped by Studio A to perform some of the new songs and to talk with me about the new record and her long career.
