The Staple Singers rose through the Chicago gospel scene and the civil rights movement to become one of the key soul and R&B bands of the 60s and 70s – and lead singer Mavis is still making music today with a new generation of musicians and producers.

Mixing the band’s story with superb archive and present-day live footage, and Mavis’s tales of Bob Dylan, Prince and many others, this documentary is a warm, engaging and moving portrayal of one of popular music’s living legends.
