Mavis Staples

Vintage Cafe – There Is God In Everything Mavis Staples Sings

January 18, 2014 - Mavis Staples is our guest today in a Vintage Cafe from 2010 around the time of the release of her Jeff Tweedy produced album You Are Not Alone. Mavis began singing with her brother, sisters and father, Pops Staples, in The Staple Singers in the 1960s. The gospel group traveled the South often appearing with the Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr. at civil rights rallies. The Staples had fondly remembered crossover hits with Stax Records in the 1970's. Before You Are Not Alone Mavis recorded an album with Ry Cooder producing called We'll Never Turn Back.
