Sharon Jones, the 57-year-old lead singer of the Dap-Kings, has a stage one tumor in her digestive track. Her next album, originally set to hit shelves early August, has been postponed. The shows the Dap-Kings had planned for the next few months are also cancelled.
Curable is a questionable term when it comes to cancer. Jones will be alright, though. She’s got the soul. Mostly she is thinking of her fans: “I’m looking forward to getting back on the road to give the people what they want! . . . I’m down, but not out!”
Jones promised she would be keeping in touch with her fans throughout this whole process.
