Eric Church Covers Mavis Staples Classic “Eyes on the Prize”

The legendary Mavis Staples was recently honored at the “Mavis Staples: I’ll Take You There – An All-Star Concert Celebration,” which was broadcast on AXS earlier in April. Eric Church, one of many superstar artists to honor Staples, performed a soulful, rocking rendition of “Eyes on the Prize.” Church donned his classic dark aviators for the performance, and was joined by a trio of background vocalists as well as a commanding horn section.

The concert special CD/DVD set will be available courtesy of Blackbird Presents Records on June 2, and the release marks Blackbird Present’s first on their own label. Watch Church’s tribute below:
