Mavis Staples


The great soul and gospel singer, recipient of this year's SFJAZZ Lifetime Achievement Award, will raise her rousing voice in songs from across her extraordinary career. She started 70 years ago at the age of 10, in the family band, the Staples Singers, whose classic hits, among them "Respect Yourself" and "I'll Take You There," became Civil Rights anthems.
