Just heard that Sharon Jones is taking time off because she has stage one bile duct cancer. Everybody, please send Sharon good vibes, prayers, and best wishes. She and her group the Dap Kings were “discovered” only a short time ago. Sharon is a spunky, fun, soulful bundle of energy, a real doll who worked and worked. She was just born in the wrong era, because if she’d been around in 1973, Sharon Jones would be in every Hall of Fame. The first time I heard her sing was at Harvey Weinstein’s wedding to Georgina Chapman (Harvey the former concert promoter has great ears). A couple of years ago Sharon and the DapKings sold out two nights over New Years at the Nokia Theatre in Times Square. I hope it takes a lot shorter than 100 days, 100 nights for Sharon to make a full recovery!
