Kennedy Center & Earth Day Celebration w/ Mavis & Booker T

Posted 05/25/10

On April 23, 2010 Mavis Staples and the band rocked the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Sold out, rocked out. Check out the Washington Post review and photos...

Couple days later Mavis, Booker T and Rick performed I'll Take You There (backed by The Roots) in front of an estimated 150,000 people on the mall in D.C. If it wasn't bizarre enough meeting Jimmy Cliff, Jessie Jackson and Questlove all in the same day, imagine seeing all those folks AND the Washington Monument while playing...unreal, surreal...call it yo mama it don't matter it was something else! Check out this most interesting youtube clip...
