B.B. King hugging Mavis & Yvonne Staples

July 9th 2011.
B.B. King is top of the bill on Gent Jazz Festival. Performing that day also are the Staples Singers: (Mavis Staples (vocals), Yvonne Staples (backing vocals), Donny Gerrard (backing vocals),Stephen Hodges (drums), Rick Holmstrom (guitar & backing vocals), Vicki Randle (backing vocals), Jeff Turmes (bass, guitar & backing vocals).

At the end of his show, B.B.King invited Mavis and Yvonne to the stage. The hugs were sincere.

I have never published these photos before, but I felt that I owed this to the community.

Here they are, the full set I could take...
