Candi Staton will perform a headline show at London’s Omeara on Tuesday 3rd July 2018.
The intimate show, near London Bridge, will launch Staton’s forthcoming 30th studio album, released this summer via Thirty Tigers. Fans can expect to hear songs from across the singer’s career including the iconic Young Hearts Run Free and the multi-platinum smash You Got the Love.
Staton will also perform at the Fiesta FOLD Festival after party in Glasgow on 30th June 2018 and Mostly Jazz Festival in Birmingham on 7th July 2018.
A wealth of artists have been inspired by Staton including Florence & The Machine, Jessie J, Mary J. Blige and Jason Isbell. Christina Aguilera sampled 1972’s Best Thing You Ever Had and Florence & The Machine and Joss Stone have both covered You Got the Love.
Staton’s 2008 collaboration, Love Sweet Sound, with British duo Groove Armada returned her to the US Dance charts for the first time since 1980. She’s also enjoyed a huge international hit with various DJ remixes (Larse, Frankie Knuckles, Ashley Beedle and David Penn) of her inspirational tune, Hallelujah Anyway.
Pete Tong, brought her in for a remake of You Got The Love with Jules Buckley’s Heritage Orchestra.
