Candice Ferguson is an American Recording Artist who was born in Roanoke, Virginia and raised in Houston Texas. She has an effervescent, radiant, glowing sound and glorious vocal strength. Candice found her gift in singing at the age of 11 when she auditioned for and was chosen to join her middle school choir. By age 16, Candice joined a gospel group called Agape 3:16 which dismantled shortly after only one short year. After the split, Candice continued her pursuit as an R&B solo artist and began recording in studios, collaborating with local artists in Houston, and performing at various venues around Texas. However, Candice has not always had something to sing about. When Candice was a child, her mother succumbed to the harsh reality of drug abuse and addiction that plagues so many of our homes and communities; as well as having an absentee father. Being raised by a drug addicted single parent wasn’t easy, and after careful consideration and uncertainty, she decided that it was time to spread her wings as she packed her bags in hopes of a better life for herself and moved to Atlanta, Georgia not knowing anyone.
Atlanta proved to be a very promising move for Candice as her career began to take shape before her eyes. She began performing at various shows in Atlanta, and surrounding states. While in Atlanta, she vocal trained at Jan Smith Studios, one of the top vocal studios in Atlanta; which is famous for training many of the successful Gold and Platinum selling artists you see today. She has had the opportunity to work with successful songwriters and producers such as Dayton Wellington - writer for J. Holiday, Terrence Hancock, JStylz from the group Blackstreet, Spec Turner who has written for Whitney Houston, and Grammy award winner Tommie Ford. She was also afforded the opportunity to expand her talent by performing the National Anthem for the Nascar Nationwide Series televised live on ESPN2.
Candice now resides in Los Angeles, California. She is also encouraged by her now sober mother’s plight. She wants to build her musical brand, and she is continuously in pursuit of perfection, always wanting to hone her craft, and remains in the studio recording, writing, and performing in the LA area. She hopes to encourage everyone through her music, and for those who are young and old to realize that regardless of where you’ve come from, or the things you've been through in life, you can still have goals and dreams, and strive to make them come true. Candice says, “While I have had many ups and downs on my journey, I've held on to hope. My life has not always been a walk in the park, but my Faith in God has gotten me to this point, and I can only look forward to his many blessings to come.”
