She did it once, she can do it again. Queen of the Dap-Kings Sharon Jones reveals her return to a battle she’s won once before. First diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2013, she stated she will begin chemo therapy this Wednesday. Jones broke the news during the premier of Miss Sharon Jones, a documentary depicting her holding the Dap-Kings together while battling the disease. The announcement was made at the Toronto International Film Festival. According to The Toronto Star, Jones said,” I’m going to do what I have to do. I’m going to sing.” Good luck Miss Jones, here’s to hearing you sing for a long time to come and may all the soul you have within you free you of this disease once again.
