I’ll take you there

Mavis Staples (born in Chicago, Illinois) is an American rhythm and blues and gospel singer, actress and civil rights activist who recorded with The Staple Singers, her family’s band. This tune reached #1 on the charts in the U.S. in 1972.


  1. one of my favs. saw her perform this live a couple of years back and the crowd swooned.


  2. Was just in her hometown, and oh to have seen her while there, well, that would have put me over the edge! 🙂


  3. Saw her at WolfTrap (she opened for Bonnie Raitt) – she is amazing. Well, they both are in my book.


  4. Get *after* it, girl!! Such a classic. Mimi, Bonnie Raitt & Mavis Staples?! Awesome!! And DK, I’m sorry, buddy, but what rock have you been hiding under?! 🙂


  5. Yeaah! One of the finest classics.


  6. Thank you David. I love the Staples Family and Mavis’ work.
