Mavis Staples: Another Chicago classic that combined soul and gospel

Back in 2010, legend Mavis Staples joined forces with another giant from the Chicago music scene-Jeff Tweedy from Wilco. She sat down with WBEZ’s Richard Steele then to talk about her album produced by Tweedy, You Are Not Alone. This was, of course, not Mavis’ first collaboration. She started her career as one of The Staples Singers, the group led by her father Pops Staples. We hear about her career since Pops passed away. Photo: Flickr/weeklydig
