"Mavis Staples is the most underrated diva of the century. She has an almost superhuman ability to implant the pure power of passion and emotion."- Rolling Stone
 
Mavis Staples is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a Grammy Award & Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner, and a National Heritage Fellowship Award recipient.  VH1 named her as one of the 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll, and Rolling Stone listed her as one of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. 
In her 67-year career – from her ground-breaking family gospel group – The Staple Singers ‘I'll Take You There’, ‘Respect Yourself’, ‘If You’re Ready (Come Go With Me)’ and on her own, Mavis Staples is responsible for blazing a rhythm & blues trail while never relinquishing her gospel roots and it is now that her star is shining brightest. Her two collaborations with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy ‘You Are Not Alone’ & ‘One True Vine,’ have earned her a Grammy Award and a whole new generation of fans whose legions grow with every performance.
She’s always ready to return ‘home’ to Australia so… ‘If You’re Ready… Come Go With Me’ and be there to welcome back Mavis Staples on her national Australian tour!
