Post-Cancer Treatment Sharon Jones Still Kicking Ass With the Dap-Kings In “Stranger to My Happiness”

+

Knowing little about Sharon Jones, aside from her powerhouse vocals, it comes as no surprise that the singer is still kicking ass despite having recently undergone a procedure to remove a cancerous tumor earlier this summer. The 57 year old, who spoke to Billboard about returning to music after her ordeal, is in fine form in the video for her new song with the the Dap-Kings “Stranger to My Happiness”, which premiered today. In the video she and the band perform as a wedding band, which I think we can all agree would probably be the first time anyone has ever actually enjoyed dancing at a wedding in the history of weddings and bands. “Not wearing a wig and just being bald was an easy decision for me,” she explained in a release. “I’ve always been me, and that’s not going to change now.”

Give the People What They Want  is out next week on Daptone Records.
