Hey Soul Sista! Mavis Staples & Jeff Tweedy Collaborate

Lead singer of the Staple Singers, Mavis Staples has released an awesome new album called You Are Not Alone with Wilco-frontman Jeff Tweedy. Mavis Staples is that little lady who sings the second verse of "The Weight" on The Last Waltz Band Concert. She's been proposed to by Bob Dylan and has won a grammy for her collaboration with him. This album has a lot of passion carried from track to track. A video for the title track is posted below, which I'd recommend to anyone. Link to album in comments.
