Mavis Staples still performing gospel music

Mavis Staples of the famed Staple Singers is still performing gospel music.

But she's also gone back to her bluesy roots. Last year, she released "We'll Never Turn Back," a CD with a historical feel for the civil rights era in which she and the Staple Singers became popular.

In November, she plans to release another CD, a live recording from Chicago's Hideout Club.

But she's still singing gospel -- at least this weekend, when she does a concert in Westport, Conn.
