Dap-Kings frontwoman Sharon Jones dies at 60

Jones and the Dap-Kings performing at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan on May 3, 2009. Jones had a raw, unreconstructed singing style drawn straight from the heyday of soul music in the 1960s.


SHARON Jones, a late-blooming soul singer who emerged in her late 40s with a gale-force voice and a magnetic stage presence, and who kept performing for the past three years while being treated for cancer, died on Nov 18 at a hospital in Cooperstown, New York. She was 60.
