Candela

Candela was an R&B vocal group from Harlem, New York that consisted of members Michelle Pratt, Lisa Dean, Fernando Luis, and Isidro Ross. Not much information is given about them, but they were signed to Arista Records.

In 1982, they released their first single, "Love You Madly" which peaked at #47 on Billboard's Hot Soul Singles chart, staying on the chart for 9 weeks.
A year later, Candela released their second single, "She Said" which was produced by John "Jellybean" Benitez. It's unknown how or if the single ever charted.

After that, it seemed as if Candela has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from them since.
