Candi Staton SMHoF

With an illustrious career that spans five decades, the legendary Candi Staton is renowned for her recordings in soul, R&B and gospel music. From her early years on the traditional gospel circuit on shows with Mahalia Jackson, The Soul Stirrers and The Reverend C.L. Franklin through to her initial success as  'Southern Soul' singer with Fame Records (scoring hits such as "Stand By Your Man" and "He Called Me Baby") on to global recognition, recording for Warner Brothers, with the dance/pop/R&B classic, "Young Hearts Run Free" and a string of charted singles (including "Nights On Broadway," "Victim," "Chance" and "When You Wake Up Tomorrow") and best-selling albums, Candi has been a constant presence in contemporary music. 

In 1982, Candi returned to gospel, creating a catalog of twelve albums, two of which were nominated for Grammy Awards.  Her 1986 single, "You Got The Love" with The Source was revived in 1991 in the UK and became a major British hit and inspiration for UK group Florence & The Machine's "You've Got The Love" 2010 smash. Released in 2018, Candi's "Unstoppable" was her 30th album and throughout the decades, she has been a consistent, dynamic and in-demand performer worldwide.
