Mavis Staples began her singing career as the lead vocalist for her family group, the Staple Singers, in the 60s. The band enjoyed hits in the 70s such as “I’ll Take You There” and “Respect Yourself”. In the 80s she worked with Prince on two albums bearing her name. “Jaguar” is a song written by Prince from the first of those two albums.
In a 2011 interview Mavis said, “Ain’t no stopping me, I will sing,” she said. “You know, you’d have to come and scoop me off the stage. I’m gonna sing till I die. I will sing until I die. No need stopping.”
Let’s hope and pray that time doesn’t come for many, many more years!
