Can you believe this woman is 71? She's so fierce: "Only the Lord knows, and he ain't you." Sing it, Mavis.
And her cover of this Creedence song is incredible. (Don't make me say fierce again.)
Obviously, I heard about her new album from my New Yorkers, my connection to the outside world. Because I read each issue at least a week late, lately, I'm a week behind on current events as well. Maybe I'll be a grownup again soon, and like, watch the news.
From The New Yorker article with Mavis and her sister Yvonne:
Here's hoping Mavis Staples still has many more years of singing ahead of her.
