The gospel legend has the fire to tear the roof off any room she plays, and her inspired pairing with the transcendent talent of Joan Osbourne will make for a special evening at the South Miami Dade Cultural Center. Staples also will be part of another formidable bill in May when she performs at the Kravis Center with the Blind Boys of Alabama, a gathering that should bring a special kind of glory.
