It is always a rarity when there is a music performance on the Daily Show, especially when it is a legend like Mavis. She was there performing material from “One True Vine” her new album.

    I’ve always loved Mavis Staples & The Staples Singers.

    My grandparents would play them when I was a baby growing up.

    I too njoyed when Mavis teamed up with Prince..

    They made a song called “God Is Alive” that was very powerful..

    I wish that song(God Is alive) was on the radio with a video stream for 2days audience..

    I loved “Time Waits 4 No1”, & “Come Home”, as well, that whole album on Paisley Park was tough..

    Prince & Mavis Staples workin as a team was awesome!!!

    “Yo Mister” with Prince & Patti Labelle, was anotha good one.

    I could see Mavis & Patti in a sequel to “Purple Rain” as Prince’s mentoring aunts.

    That would be very cool, if it were very dramatic…
