Be among the first to see Sharon Jones' new video

Sharon Jones, an Augusta native, is the subject of a VH1 documentary expected out next year in time for the release of her new CD Give The People What They Want.


Augusta native Sharon Jones today got to see the video version of her new song, Retreat, on Daptone Records and shared it with The Augusta Chronicle. It is the first song released to the public from her new CD, Give The People What They Want, due out early next year.

Jones, who is an internationally known rhythm and blues star and Augusta-area resident, has been honored recently in exhibits at the Augusta Museum of History and the North Augusta Arts & Heritage Center.

She has been recovering in recent months in upstate New York from chemo treatments for bile duct cancer but is expected to get back on the road early next year.
