Mavis Staples on World Cafe: Vintage

“Legendary soul and gospel singer Mavis Staples is one of the most prominent vocalists of our time The start of her career with family band The Staples Singers was a modest one, performing at local churches and radio stations. But once they took their performances to the road, they became nothing short of R&B icons.”
