Mavis Staples: I'll Take You There, An All-Star Concert Celebration captures performances from the historic, one-night event at Chicago's historic Auditorium Theatre that honored the music of Mavis Staples, one of the most beloved cultural icons of our time. This hour-plus 2LP edition features 15 once-in-a-lifetime performances from the likes of Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, Michael McDonald, Glen Hansard, Aaron Neville, Eric Church, Taj Mahal, Gregg Allman, Bonnie Raitt, Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire, and Jeff Tweedy.

Each artist honors Mavis Staples by singing her classic tunes, culminating in a full ensemble jam session of "The Weight." Selections from the concert's audio recording include some of Mavis' classics, like "I'll Take You There," "Will The Circle Be Unbroken," and "People Get Ready." "That night was really special," recalls Staples. "To be able to see so many of my friends up there performing songs that I've sung for years was just incredible. I couldn't wait to get up there and take the stage myself! It was a night I'll never forget."

Throughout an unparalleled career that spans over six decades, Mavis Staples' soulful songs of justice and equality have become a soundtrack for the Civil Rights Movement, and inspired countless other artists and activists.
