Kandace Springs


Kandace Springs is a singer/songwriter hailing from Nashville, Tennessee. She got her big break from music legend Prince after he heard her cover of Sam Smith’s smash hit “Stay With Me.” After hearing her rendition, the Purple One personally invited her to perform at Paisley Park for a celebration of the 30 year anniversary of Purple Rain. Soon after the performance, she was signed by Carl Sturken and Evan Rogers, who are known for discovering and signing Rihanna. Springs cites Lauryn Hill, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin as her musical inspirations. Her self-titled EP was released on September 30, 2014. (Photo: Leann Mueller/U Music)
