Mavis Staples

One of the most unforgettable voices in American music, soul and gospel icon Mavis Staples performs tonight with the backdrop of New York behind her as part of Lincoln Center's "American Songbook" series. Her oeuvre contains classics "I'll Take You There" and "Respect Yourself" that she recorded with her family group, the Staple Singers (whose Yvonne will be singing with Mavis tonight), as well as songs from her recent records, which were produced by the likes of Ry Cooder and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy.
