iTunes Review

Between her work as a civil rights activist, a GRAMMY®-winning solo artist, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Mavis Staples has shaped a legacy as one of the most influential R&B stylists of her generation. In her latest gospel-themed release One True Vine, the soulful singer continues to showcase her moving voice on commanding tracks such as “Holy Ghost” and “Can You Get To That”, a hearty, polished Funkadelic cover. A sense of resilience and positivity run though the album, especially on the confident, electric guitar-driven “I Like the Things About Me,” which flaunts a self-appreciation the legend has earned.

Staples has a rich contralto voice that has neither the range of Aretha Franklin nor the power of Patti LaBelle....
