I’ve never been much of a gospel fan, but recently I saw a video of the Staple Singers from the late 50’s. This youtube video doesn’t really do the performance justice, but I find the Staple Singers, and Mavis Staple specifically to be quite inspirational when it comes to emitting passion. She not only made gospel music, but explored many genres of music.

I also recently discovered that Mavis is still making music with Jeff Tweedy from Wilco! What a great combo.




Thank you Ms. Mavis, thank you Mr. Tweedy.
