Special Guest Candi Staton!
Join us for a deep dive into the music and stories of your favorite Soul and R&B artists. David Nathan, noted soul music historian, joins host Bethany Dawson every other week to chat about the lives of the people who made the music that continues to move our souls.
A multi-genre musical icon who has been recording since 1953, Candi Staton has the unique distinction of achieving success in the gospel, R&B, pop and dance music over six decades.
In this extensive conversation with SoulMusic.com founder David Nathan (who first interviewed Candi in 1977), the multi-award winning singer/songwriter and performer talks about the different stages of her career, the fascinating story behind her 1976 recording of the now-classic “Young Hearts Run Free,” personal health challenges and a revival in popularity thanks to another anthem, “You Got The Love.”
