Candy West is a name synonymous with Gospel music. In over 2 decades, she has performed and traveled as a background and featured vocalist with artists including Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, Myron Butler, Mary Mary, Snarky Puppy and Erykah Badu. She now gets ready for the release of her solo debut, Candy West Live.
“This record is the soundtrack of faith. It’s the soundtrack for a believer that wants a real relationship with God,” shares West. “One of my favorite songs on the record is one of the most honest songs I’ve written and probably one of the most honest songs I’ll ever sing: it’s called Contentment. The song talks about being between purpose and destiny; where it’s uncomfortable, but you still know and are trusting that God has a plan.”
With production assistance from Candy West, Myron Butler and Deonis Cook and songwriting by West, Butler and Shanika Bereal, the CD hits digital outlets on August 12th.
