In September 2016 a documentary Miss Sharon Jones! Official Trailer
directed by Barbara Kopple (talk show here) came out showing her as she tries to hold her band together while battling pancreatic cancer.
I witnessed here stunning comeback with the Daptone Revue live on 29 June 2014 in Paris, France. She sang full of energy even she had no hair due to radiotherapy he she had recently undergone. Her song "Retreat" inspired by her fight against cancer was particularly moving! She was an outstanding live performer & singer! Sharon Jones was such a strong and inspiring woman and we miss her!
