Mavis Staples

Arizona Musicfest is honored to present one of the greatest gospel and rhythm and blues singers of all time, Mavis Staples. A 2016 Kennedy Center Honoree, Mavis Staples’ unmatched career as both a soloist and as a member of The Staples Singers spans over six decades. From freedom songs of the civil rights era, to pop stardom with hits such as I’ll Take You There and Respect Yourself, to collaborations with Bob Dylan, Prince and Willie Nelson, her singular voice and soulful music has served as a soundtrack to America. Still going strong today, in 2016, Staples released a new album and was the subject of the acclaimed HBO documentary, Mavis!.
