Celebrating Mavis Staples
"I never thought that that would lead to the career that we’ve had – singing for Dr. Martin Luther King, Presidents Kennedy, Carter, Clinton and Obama, winning Grammy Awards, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame…and so much more. I still get surprised when I look in the audience at my shows and see all these young people, whole new generations, and they want to hear these songs and what I have to say. And it feels so good. I’m truly blessed." - Mavis Staples, from the Faith & Grace Box Set.
