Mavis Staples

Friday, Nov 8, 2013 8:00p

Rhythm and blues and gospel legend Mavis Staples brings her trailblazing style and distinctive smoldering voice to the Center for the first time.

Staples' career began in the 1950s when her family's iconic gospel-folk group, The Staple Singers, became a popular household name with hits such as "I'll Take You There" and "Respect Yourself". Their spiritual and political sound became voices of the Civil Rights movement alongside Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
