Andy Whitman Interviews Mavis Staples

Mavis Staples’ You Are Not Alone was far and away the finest gospel album I heard in 2010. Have you heard it yet? It’s so full of joy, warmth, encouragement, and soul.

My friend Andy Whitman was blessed with an opportunity to interview her, and he turned that opportunity into an article that’s well worth your time.

In case you missed it, I included Staples’ album on my Favorite Recordings of 2010 list.
