Sharon Jones: 1956 – 2016

Lead singer of the Dap Kings, Sharon Jones has lost her battle with pancreatic cancer.  She was first diagnosed in 2013, and after losing her hair to chemotherapy, performed bald, putting her struggle front and center.

In 2015, her cancer returned and she again began chemotherapy.

Here’s Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings performing “Retreat” at Glasonbury 2014, one of my favorite songs from that year.

Fuck cancer, y’all.
