American southern soul and gospel diva Candi Staton has been thrilling audiences with her raw, heartfelt and incredibly powerful voice for over 50 years. She is most famous for her 1976 disco hit Young Hearts, Run Free. She returned to the spotlight in the early 90’s as the dance mix of her song You Got The Love thrilled clubland the world over and in 2009 was released again by Florence & The Machine.
Candi Station was famously described as “a voice with a tear in it, the cry of a woman wounded by life, by men, by woes turned inwards” and it is with great pleasure we welcome this true legend to The Royal Northern College of Music.
