Bio

At the tender age of 19, Candace Benson, known by her close friends as “CB”, has experienced more success and acclaim than many artists achieve in a lifetime. Candace has opened up for nationally known artists and was the featured artist for the “Black Men’s Business Association” in Washington, D.C where some of the guests were Michelle Obama and Magic Johnson. Early this year she was chosen out of 300 students to sing at the PMEA District chorus Festival at Souderton High School. She then went onto the PMEA Regional chorus Festival at Central Bucks High School.

She is the music director for Mount Zion, AME church in Devon, Pa and is apart of the Pottstown High Schools’ Concert and Marching Band. Candace takes pride as a recording artist as she herself recorded her first short EP with well known producer, Ray Holloman who has worked with artists such as Mary Mary, Floetry, and Pharelle. As an actress, Candace has garnered lead and supporting roles in the school and community stage plays such as “The Wizard of Oz”, “Suessical”, and “Bye Bye Birdie”.

Candace will soon graduate from Pottstown High School with a 3.8 GPA as a dual enrollment student moving onto college in the fall majoring in Music Engineer with an emphasis on Music Education.

What sets her apart is that she has the ability to play multiple different instruments fluently. She composes her own music and produces her own backgrounds. She is consistent in everything she does and she is a hardworker. Her voice maturity is well beyond her years. Audiences end up in tears after every performance. She is a sensation!
