Legendary R&B and gospel singer Mavis Staples performed “Build A Bridge” on Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
“Build A Bridge” is from Staples’ sixteenth studio album If All I Was Was Black, produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and released last November via ANTI- Records.
“Build A Bridge” features funky, almost psychedelic electric guitar licks, cymbal-heavy percussion and Staples’ uplifting, larger-than-life vocals. Staples and Tweedy also performed the track together on Colbert in November.
