Sharon Jones Diagnosed with Bile Duct Cancer, Postpones Album & Tour

She’s down – but not out.

Singer Sharon Jones, 57, the frontwoman of the soul and funk revivalist group Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, has revealed she’s been diagnosed with stage-one bile duct cancer and has been forced to cancel all promotional duties. An album, scheduled for release in August, will also be postponed.

In a statement posted on her website, Jones says early detection of the stage-one tumor on her bile duct means she is expected to make a full recovery.
