Oh, yeah. We need MORE documentaries like this. The true and beautiful legacy of America isn't "bringing freedom" to other countries, it's the music, the movies, the literature. Above all, the music: Gospel, Blues, Jazz, R'nB, Rock...

Love me some Mavis. Another voice we will never hear the likes of,... ever. God bless her.

I'm a devout agnostic, but you show me a church where Mavis is singing, and I'm there in the front row. A true American treasure.
