Mavis! premiere on HBO
Last year I had the pleasure of serving as Executive Producer on Jessica Edwards’ incredible music documentary about Mavis Staples and the Staple Singers. So I’m excited to announce that Mavis! will have its US television premiere Monday, February 29th on HBO. From the freedom songs of the ’60s and hits like I’ll Take You There in the ’70s, to funked-up collaborations with Prince and her recent albums with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Mavis has stayed true to her roots, kept her family close, and inspired millions along the way.
The film features Bob Dylan, Prince, Bonnie Raitt, Levon Helm, Jeff Tweedy, Chuck D, and more. It’ll also be in theaters in Los Angeles and New York this month, see the website for full details.
Watch the trailer below, and catch it on HBO on the 29th!
