Candice Pillay was born June 10th, 1981 in the small town of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. The model (who also goes by Candy) has apparently had a love for the stage and performing as well. Her East Indian heritage combined with a love for R&B and Soul music makes for her remarkable sound and style. She grew up in a musical family, and began singing in her church at the age of 5. She left her home in South Africa and moved to the States to further both her modeling and her career. She lived in New York and recorded and performed her music there, playing at various clubs and parties. Candy later moved to Los Angeles where she continues her music career with recording, performance and radio work. Candy has since branched out into a part-time modeling career in, fashion-runway, print and spokes-model work.
