Soul legend Candi Staton and Brit superstar Pixie Lott put on a very special, one-off, performance last night at the infamous London music venue, The Jazz Cafe, Camden.
The creative PR team at Quite Great love nothing more than (music PR, and) witnessing music legends do their thing, so the opportunity to be part of this unique occasion was a treasured treat. After having a blast with Candi at Besitval this weekend the Quite Great team can’t get enough of her. The team were on hand at The Jazz Cafe last night taking care of Candi’s PR and of course basking in the fantastic show Candi and Pixie put on.
The intimate space of The Jazz Cafe was brought to life last night as Candi and Pixie took to the stage together.
Candi showcased some of her new songs to the lucky few that managed to get tickets to the sell-out event. The new material sounded like old classics already, with everyone singing the words back immediately.
The set was utterly phenomenal, even before the closing tracks. To finish the set Candi and Pixie joined forces to perform a very special duet of ‘Young Hearts Run Free’ and finally the house was brought down with Candi’s original classic ‘You’ve got the love’.
Pixie Lott tweeted last night saying ‘’Tonight I got to sing with one of my favourite singers ever’’.
It’s sure to say that nobody was disappointed and everybody was left with a certain afterglow following the special evening.
The Quite Great team were treated to an unforgettable performance by the Soul Icon Candi Staton at Bestival 2014 , whilst also arranging a great deal of fantastic pr at the festival in between Candi’s amazing live show which really thrilled the public and media alike.
