Legendary gospel soul singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples joins multi-platinum ’90s sensation Joan Osborne (“One of Us”) for a truly special, “solid soul” performance. Staples will sing songs from the days of singing in her family band, the Staple Singers, and politically charged hits like “Long Walk to D.C.,” and “When Will We Be Paid.” At 75, her voice is just as buoyant and honey-coated as ever, and will be accompanied by a full band, and of course, a gospel choir.
