Post Grammy Mavis To Play Conan, NAACP Awards & More

After winning the first Grammy of her career earlier this month, Mavis Staples makes a triumphant return to LA next week for a Conan appearance on Wednesday March 2nd and a performance honoring former Secretary of State Colin Powell at the NAACP Image Awards on Friday March 4. Mavis is an NACCP Award-nominee for You Are Not Alone, which is up for Outstanding Gospel Album. The Awards will air live from the Shrine Auditorium on Fox at 8/7 Central.

In between her TV appearances, on Thursday, March 3, Mavis will stop by KCRW for a live on-air interview (10am PT) and that night she will be joined by her full band for an "insanely rare" (LA Times) performance at the Satellite (formerly Spaceland).

Staples, nominated alongside Robert Plant, Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash and Los Lobos, took home the Grammy for Best Americana Album for You Are Not Alone. Produced by Jeff Tweedy, the album earned Mavis the highest Billboard chart debut of her 50+ year career along with universal critical acclaim. NPR enthused, "she turns a simple pop song into a lament that could move a listener to tears," while the Chicago Tribune called her "a voice of reassurance in troubled times."
