    This was great. Good stage presence! Does anyone know where I read a decent biography on her career. How old is she now?

    The Sister of Little Willie John, Mable John became the lead singer of Ray Charles’s
    Raylettes. Mable was born on the 3rd November 1930 in Bastrop, Louisiana but the family soon moved to Detroit as many did attracted by full time work and good pay on the automobile production lines.

    Well done, and great to see Mable on stage.

    After being a guest on his radio show, Mable appeared here on UK BBC on Jools Holland's Hootenanny show on New Year's Eve, 2008 (?).

    Sang "No Matter How She Done It", in close-up, sat on the piano stool, while Jools played.

    Mable, is still very able!
