Meet Candice Burton!

by KeAnne on March 17, 2017

Candice was one of our final auditions on audition day 3, and I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. Her piece is short but powerful, and it packs a wallop. Meet Candice!

Candice Burton

Candice came to Raleigh for work and has made it her home for the last several years.  She lives in Raleigh with her family:

I have been married for 10 years to my husband and best friend. We have a 13 year old son Gavin and a 4 year old daughter Mia. They are the absolute loves of my life!

Candice is an entrepreneur, but when not thinking up new business endeavors, she has the following hobbies:

Listening to music, dancing terribly, reading, writing, working out, and spending time with friends and family.

Candice heard about Listen to Your Mother through friend, photographer (and now cast member ) Jess Rotenberg.

Candice’s favorite writers include her sister Janis Nicole Townsend, Thich Nhat Hanh, and Angela Davis.

When asked to describe herself, Candice replied:

I consider myself a miniature activist and try to stay involved as much as possible. I just love people and want to do as much as I can to make a difference. I am currently working on a mentoring program that I hope to launch soon. 


Heads up: bring a tissue for Candice’s piece; you will need it. Buy tickets now to hear Candice on May 5.
