Candace Hall; Musician, Model
â€œKnowledge is power, and every girl who wants to be in the entertainment business should educate themselves on the industry a little more. Do what makes you happy,â€? Candace says.
Where Sheâ€™s From: Gorgeous musician and model, Candace Hall, a Pisces, was born and raised in Jacksonville, Fl.
â€œI went to Andrew Jackson, and I started working on my music a year after I graduated,â€? she tells The Black Star News. â€œI consider my modeling career at a beginning point because Iâ€™ve only been doing it for almost a year. I'm trying to balance my music and modeling at the same time. As for modeling, I started the middle of last year and I'm already getting gigs.â€?
Where Sheâ€™s At: Candace says she now has a better understanding of the music industry thanks to her entertainment lawyer. â€œHeâ€™s getting ready to shop my music to the different record companies,â€? she adds.
Candace has landed a part on a local variety TV show, MTV Rock music video, and some fashion shows. â€œKnowledge is power, and every girl who wants to be in the entertainment business should educate themselves on the industry a little more. Do what makes you happy,â€? she says.
How does Candace prepare to step out? â€œI like to use M.A.C, and I'm also a fan of Victoria's secret. I love their pure seduction and love spell cream. I like Victoria's Secret Cream lotion, because it smells good and it lasts throughout the day. I really don't wear make-upâ€”only for shoots, or special occasions, other than that some mascara, eye-liner, and some lip-gloss will do me fine. As far as clothes, sometimes I like to get things made for me, or most of the time I'm putting pieces together that I like from different stores.â€?
Candaceâ€™s Words Of Wisdom: â€œPut God first; be yourself. Nobody is going to believe in you like you will, and don't let peopleâ€™s negative thoughts stop you from achieving whatever it is that you want to do in life.â€?
Candaceâ€™s Secrets To Success: â€œGood, better, best; never let it rest, until your good is your better, and your better is your best.â€?
Favorite Movies: â€œColor Purple, Jackson 5, Wizard of Oz.â€?
Favorite Books:Â â€œSheisty by TN Baker, Crackhead by Lisa Lennox, Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah.â€?
The First Three Things Candace Would Do As President: â€œStart free tutoring programs for low-income families to help decrease the percentage of drop-outs; increase the minimum pay rate for teachers; and, start a program for teen girls who are consensually sexually active with over-age guys to teach them to become respectful women, and the consequences behind their actions.â€?
Candaceâ€™s Favorite Cars: â€œI like the Chrysler 300's because I like the big grill in the front and the luxury look, and the Mercedes/Ocean Drive Concept, an ultra-luxury 4 door convertible.
