#MAVISDOC: HBO Presents MAVIS! | The Mavis Staples Documentary

Last night we had the pleasure of getting a private screening of the upcoming HBO documentary MAVIS! directed by Jessica Edwards.  The documentary celebrates the life and music of Mavis Staples and the Staples family.  The film covered all decades starting with Mavis’ gospel beginnings in the 60’s to her blues comeback of the 10’s.

As an added treat Mavis surprised us with a performance, introduced by Jon Batiste and accompanied by Singer/Songwriter Valerie June.  Who would believe a woman could still bring a tear to every eye with just one tune.

MAVIS! premieres on HBO Monday February 29th at 9pm.
