About the Featured Musicians:

Candus Churchill

Born in Louisville, Kentucky Candus found her love of music early in life as her entire family played instruments or sang. After touring the US and Japan with the group Dragon Fly, Candus settled in Vancouver, BC in 1980 and then branched out into acting in theatre, television, and film, amassing an impressive number of credits as per her IMDB page.

In 1991 Candus was instrumental in creating Vancouver’s first Contemporary Black Gospel Group, Circle Of Voices, which later became The Gospel Experience. Under Candus’ dedication and administration, they became a seminal force in the Vancouver gospel music scene for over two decades.

Candus is honoured to be a 2020-21 inductee into The BC Entertainment Hall Of Fame Star Meritus.
