Singer Candice Anitra is modern musician. Labels or genres just confuse the impact of such a powerful talent. Her music is described as a mellifluous yet audacious blend of all the delicious yet oft overlooked spaces between the genres.

Ms. Anitra is on her way up so be sure to catch this performance.
