The year of 2016 has not been a very kind year to the legends of R&B, soul, and funk music. While the world continues healing from the death of Prince, another legend has died. Just minutes ago, news broke about the death of Sharon Jones.
Sharon Jones rose to fame in the late 1970s with The Dap Kings and became a household name. Much like the other artists of her generation, Sharon Jones found success later in her career, performing shows. She did it until she could not do it anymore.
Never one to back down, Sharon Jones fought her battle with pancreatic cancer with all she had. Sadly, the fight came to an end today and she died at sixty years old. Social media is heartbroken over her loss, taking to Twitter to mourn her, and looking back on her final performance with Prince much differently, now.
