PRESALE: Use code HAPPY to access presale. Valid only on Thursday, February 14 from NOON – 11:59pm.

Celebrating 80 years of Mavis Staples, She launches into “Reach out Touch a Hand,” The Joyous final track on her new album, Live in London. The recording caps a remarkable chapter in Staples’ legendary career—A decade that has seen her reach new creative height and win ever-greater acclaim. Even as she is now counting down the months to her 80th birthday.

Mavis Staples began her career singing with the family group in 1950. When she graduated from high school, the Staple Singers started touring, and—with their stunning harmonies and Pops Staples’ distinctive, chiming guitar tone—rose from popularity in the gospel world to become a central part of the soundtrack to the protest movement of the 1960s. The Staple Singers “freedom songs,” magnificent expressions of strength and empowerment, earned the group a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.

Staples would go on to record two albums produced by Prince (one titled simply The Voice), and to work with Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, and George Jones. In 2017, she was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, and in 2018 received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Arts Awards.
