Mavis Staples, Nick Lowe & Wilco rehearsing the Band’s “The Weight” backstage at Chicago’s Civic Opera House in December, 2011.
Hear Mavis talk about her collaboration album with Wilco on this week’s American Routes.
i love her so much!! miss mavis is my total happy place… mavis and pops have this way of calming me and making me feel better. the unbelievable amount of beauty contained within those two souls is massive… it just radiates out of her from within and it did pops as well before he passed. they always leave me feeling so much better after i listen to them and have the power to put a huge smile on my face like nothin else… those staples folks just have something magical about them… ♥♥♥
