Mavis Staples - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston

Mavis Staples is WFUV's "Artist of the Year," and we'll present an award to her at our Gala, one month from tonight. (You can get your tickets for the Gala here.)

It's a big year for Mavis, who turns 75 this summer, and a perfect time to look back at her iconic career and her visits to WFUV.

So please enjoy "Mavis Staples: This Is My Gift" -- a look at the highlights of our recent visits with Mavis.
