    Candy West is nothing short than a direct contributor to the evolution and sound of modern day gospel. Raised in a musical household and being the daughter of gospel songstress Tommye Young-West helped shape and nurture her musical ability. While in her teenage years Candy began her professional music career with God’s Property. During her time with the group they released a self titled multi-platinum selling album under Kirk Franklin’s production genius, where Candy co-wrote and was featured lead on album standout “Sweet Spirit”. Candy is noted as one of the direct vocal influences of the Kirk Franklin sound. Eight years later in 2005, Candy was given a national platform again as a member of Myron Butler and Levi and a featured vocalist on their lead single “Set Me Free” on their debut project of the same title that garnered a Grammy nomination. That was just the beginning as Candy would go on to record, perform, tour, and co write with artist within and beyond the gospel genre including such artist as Tamela Mann, Marvin Sapp, Erykah Badu, Patti LaBelle, Snarky Puppy, DeWayne Woods, and Fred Hammond.
    As time brings about change, Candy has evolved. Being a sought after worship leader and teacher, she has been afforded many opportunities as a result. Candy has served as the Director of Worship and Arts at The Worship Center Christian Church in Birmingham, Alabama with Pastor Van Moody and currently serves as one of the worship leaders at The Potter's House of Dallas under Bishop TD Jakes. Candy’s love to teach, equip, and develop talent and leaders caused her to found and currently serve as the CEO of Talent Suite Entertainment, an artist development and talent for hire company. As well as U.W.I.N.: United Worshipers International Network, a company that serves to inspire, equip, and impact those in worship ministry. Her heart is to help push others to their greatest potential.
    Candy has shown no slowing down in being a constant influencer and contributor of gospel music. Still a member of Myron Butler and Levi, over ten years later after their debut, she is again a featured lead on their current lead single that is sweeping the country entitled “Best Praise” from there most recent release On Purpose which garnered their first number one debut. Candy is also a member of Bishop TD Jakes’ all-female quintet Grace who is on his Dexterity Sounds label. Candy was also handpicked to perform a tribute with other female solo artist to the legendary Clark Sisters during 2016 Essence Fest. Before the close of 2015 Candy stepped out to blaze a new trail as she recorded her first solo project Candy West Live which is slated to be released Friday, August 12, 2016.  Currently her lead single "TURNAROUND" is available on all digital music outlets and building much anticipation for the full project. Candy West continues to embrace the legacy designed for her and leaving a life changing impact wherever she goes.
