Feeling a bit camera shy


“I have a desire to sing songs from my soul to express my love of life, my appreciation for who I am and what I can and will accomplish in my lifetime...I know that I am here for a divine purpose... that's what keeps my voice fresh and new every morning. It's my hope and the desire of my heart that you receive something special in every song that I sing... that it's not just another sound...but something that will make a difference in your life.”

Ms. Candace has been on a journey since she looked up to her sixth grade dance teacher and with a spark in her little eyes said “Im going to be a star”. Though she wasn’t sure how far dance would take her she knew that there was one area in the arts she was destined to fit into. She was a singer at heart and never lost that fire. Throughout years of training it is her passion that continues to drive her.

For three years she attended the Durham Magnet School of the Arts, where she studied music, dance, and theatre. She then moved with her family to Washington DC where she attended the Duke Ellington School of the Arts and graduated with a diploma in the art of Musical Theatre. Once she graduated at age 17 she knew she needed to exceed all expectations in the business by not only being able to perform but also knowing the business that is involved in making music. So she got accepted and began majoring in Music Business at the World Renown Berklee College of Music, in Boston MA.

It’s been a long time coming but she’s been perfecting her craft for years. And if she’s ever in your town you might want to go check her out…you’ll be glad you did!
Some of her reviews include:

“…Candace Coles delivered inspiring renditions of "I Believe in Love" and the heart-rending "Easy to Be Hard…" says Emily Levin, for The Washington Post.

“…Belting out beautiful high and long notes was Candace Coles as Shelia…” says Rebecca Lear, for the Ellington Press.

“…Candace Coles provided tough competition for McCrory, with a beautiful voice that always hit the right notes…” says Ryan Fischer, for the Ellington Press.
