The Staple Singers was born.

"She didn't want to talk about her own singing", he added.

Yvonne Staples' soulful baritone was featured on such hits as "Respect Yourself" and "I'll Take You There", alongside her sisters Mavis and Cleotha Staples and their father, guitarist Pops Staples. "She had no desire to be a front singer, even though people in the family told her she had a great voice".

A rep for Staples' sister Mavis Staples confirmed Yvonne Staples' passing. She was diagnosed with cancer a couple of weeks ago.

She was born in Chicago to Pops and Oceola Staples, both with MS roots.

Yvonne Staples performs during the 2014 Newport Folk Festival at Fort Adams State Park on July 27, 2014 in Newport, Rhode Island. Staples was not as interested in the limelight, Mr Carpenter said.

The Staple Singers, Pops Staples, Cleotha Staples, Yvonne Staples and Mavis Staples perform on TV show in 1970 in New York City.

School bus falls in gorge in Himachal Pradesh, kills 23 children
Transport Minister Govind Thakur and all the other members of the state Cabinet have condoled the death of school children. The driver, who also died along with two teachers, was reportedly speeding and lost control on a mountain road in India.

Yvonne Staples, who provided background vocals for her family's hit-making pop and soul group, the Staple Singers, while taking the lead in managing its business affairs, died on Tuesday at her home in Chicago.

In 1999, the singers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for delivering music with a message, according to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's website. When the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. traveled with the group, he'd ask them to play Pops Staples' "Why?"

Pops Staples died in 2000. She felt lost without her father's guidance and stopped performing.

Yvonne's older sister, Cleotha, died in 2013 of Alzheimer's disease.

Mavis Staples, 78, the remaining Staples sister, continues to perform and is now touring for her latest album, "If All I Was Was Black". "If this is what the contract said, this is what you better do". And that's when she started with the other words: 'Damn it, Mavis, ' and worse. She started singing with Mavis and their brother Pervis in the 1940s at their uncle's church. If band members or vocalists screwed up a harmony or missed a note, they usually heard from Yvonne Staples. "But she was the eagle eye that saw every move somebody would make before they made it. ..."

"She was very no nonsense but at the same time had a heart of gold", he said. "When he came back, I said, 'Oh, no, you're still excused'".
