Celebrate Valentine’s Day with the recipient of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award: Mavis Staples, the woman hailed as one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” by Rolling Stone and the 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll by VH1. The legendary gospel, soul, and R&B singer, who defined those genres for decades with her family band, The Staple Singers, also sang at the inaugurations of presidents Kennedy, Carter, and Clinton. She continues to dazzle.
