The Staple Singers - Voice Your Choice

The Staple Singers were a family R&B group formed by Roebuck "Pop" Staples, and included his son Pervis, and daughters Cleotha and Yvonne, plus lead singer Mavis Staples.

Prior to being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio in 1999, they appeared on the Billboard charts a total of 18 times, including 4 Top Ten hits, two Gold Records and One Platinum Record. Sadly, Pop Staples died December 19, 2000 at age 84.

This week Treasure Island Oldies is pleased to present The Staple Singers on Voice Your Choice with two of their fantastic hits: I'll Take You There and If You're Ready (Come Go With Me). Cast your vote by coming to the Voice Your Choice Page. We'll play the winner in Hour 3 of next week's show.
