Mavis Staples: I’ll Take You There, An All-Star Concert Celebration captured performances from the historic, one-night concert event that honored the music of Mavis Staples, one of the most beloved cultural icons of our time.

The two-and-a-half-hour concert film and available audio recordings feature over 20 once-in-a-lifetime performances from this momentous event by Gregg Allman, Ryan Bingham, Win Butler & Régine Chassagne, Eric Church, Otis Clay, Patty Griffin, Glen Hansard, Emmylou Harris, Taj Mahal, Michael McDonald, Buddy Miller, Keb’ Mo’, Aaron Neville, Joan Osborne, Widespread Panic, Grace Potter, Bonnie Raitt, Jeff & Spencer Tweedy, and Mavis Staples. Both the album and the film shine a light on performers who do not often share the same stage in order to honor Mavis Staples by singing her classic, iconic songs. In addition to the performances, the film goes behind the scenes with exclusive interviews from the artists and takes a deep dive into the cultural and musical impact of Mavis Staples.

Captured and presented in stunning HD quality with true Dolby 5.1 surround stereo, the full-length concert film and available audio records include some of Mavis’ classics, like “I’ll Take You There,” “Will The Circle Be Unbroken,” and “People Get Ready.”
