Mavis Staples is best known for her extensive gospel career with the Staples Singers. She was born July 10, 1939 in Chicago, Illinois. She began singing with her family, The Staples Singers, at local Chicago churches before signing with the gospel label Vee-Jay Records in 1953. The family put on a concert in Montgomery, Alabama, which Martin Luther King Jr. was attending. The group later had a number of soul hits and a No. 1 pop song with “Let’s Do It Again,” from the film soundtrack of the same name. Mavis has also established a solo career while working with a range of artists, from Prince to Natalie Merchant.
