Mavis Staples

Unstoppable septuagenarian gospel legend Mavis Staples hits the stage behind last year's Livin' on a High Note, an effervescent effort featuring songwriting from Nick Cave, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and TUnE-yArDs’ Merrill Garbus. Staples cited Pharrell Williams's "Happy" as an inspiration for the album, saying in an interview with the Guardian, "I told my songwriters I wanted songs just like that, that would make people smile, also because I’ve been making people cry for so long.” It's quite possible you'll do both at this Central Park show.
