Twenty-thirteen was a terrible year for Sharon Jones. The 57-year-old soul singer was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just after finishing up her new album, Give the People What They Want. She postponed the LP's release, canceled all her tour dates with the Dap-Kings and underwent grueling treatment. Now the cancer is gone, the album arrived in January and Jones is back on the road, performing a string of shows in American theaters. She let Rolling Stone tag along for a behind-the-scenes look at her gig at New York's Beacon Theatre.
