About the artist
The Staple Singers were an American gospel, soul and R&B singing group. Roebuck "Pops" Staples, the patriarch of the family, formed the group with his children Cleotha, Pervis, and Mavis. Yvonne replaced her brother when he was drafted into the U.S. Army, and again in 1970. They are best known for their 1970s hits "Respect Yourself", "I'll Take You There", "If You're Ready", and "Let's Do It Again", which with one exception peaked on the Hot 100 within a week from Christmas Day. While the family name is Staples, the group used "Staple" commercially.
