Mavis Staples Chats With Marc Maron and Anthony Mason, Performs on CBS This Morning

This past weekend, CBS This Morning’s Anthony Mason spoke with Mavis Staples about her three recent 80th birthday shows and what continues to keep her inspired to perform.

They also discuss how she stays in shape – with boxing classes, vocal warm-ups and eating healthily. Watch their conversation HERE.

Mavis and her band also performed three songs from the new album ‘We Get By’ in the CBS studio – watch their renditions of “Change”, “Stronger” and “We Get By” now.

Mavis also recently chatted with Marc Maron for his podcast WTF with Marc Maron about growing up in Chicago, early performances with her family’s band the Staple Singers and working with Martin Luther King Jr. and Bob Dylan. Listen to their in-depth conversation HERE.
