Candi Staton

New Pittsburgh Courier

Four-Time Grammy nominee Candi Staton has a story she wants to tell

Understanding a person’s start is sometimes more valuable than understanding their ending — especially someone who has reached iconic status. “Young Hearts Run Free” made Candi Staton a global icon. Hits such as “You Got the Love” and “Stand by Your Man” further enhanced her status in the music world. However, the start of her career was not as glamorous as her current status would lead you to believe. Like those of many African American entertainers in the ’60s, her career would begin on what was known as the Chitlin’ Circuit.
