Back in 2014, an all-star lineup of musicians got together to celebrate the life and legacy of Mavis Staples at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre.
That concert, dubbed Mavis Staples: I’ll Take You There – An All-Star Concert Celebration, will air on TV on April 16th at 10 PM on AXS TV. For those without access to AXS TV, a CD/DVD bundle will be made available on June 2nd.
