Listen to the title track of Mavis Staples upcoming release, 'If All I Was Was Black.' "These songs are going to change the world."
"I love all of you out there that made my dreams come true. When I come back, I'll come back strong, with God's love. With God's will, I'll be back soon."
This world premiere video, directed by Blake Judd, builds the tension of the song to a leave-it-to-our-imagination climax.
"Our roots are in Houston so this is going to be a very special show for us."
From the barrelhouse power of 1920’s Bessie Smith to the electrified sounds of 1960’s Betty James, blues music has always been a strong influence.
