Current Magazine would like to extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family, friends and fans of soul and funk singer Sharon Jones.

Ms. Jones & The Dap Kings have dominated the music industry since the mid-60’s. 

In fact, Jones has been labeled the female James Brown of her era. The group (The Dap-Kings) was nominated for their first Grammy Award in December of 2014 in the category Best Album of the Year for Give the People What They Want.

Sharon Jones was born on May 4, 1956 and passed away on November 18, 2016.

Ms. Jones is a musical icon that will be greatly missed and forever remembered.
