KREUZBERGED – BERLIN COMPANION

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

MUSIC SOOTHES THE SOUL: SHARON JONES AND THE DAP-KINGS

She´s a lady, she´s a diva and, lord, can she sing! Sharon Jones´s concert at the Neue Welt in Hasenheide in Ferbuary 2012 left me with trembling knees and an inexplicable yet delightful urge to bellow words on top of my lungs.

And Ms Jones, in her golden-green sparkly mini dress and with that I´m-so-here-baby attitude was the queen of all she surveyed.

In 2013 Sharon Jones was diagnosed with Stage Two pancreatic cancer (changed from the original diagnosis of bile duct cancer). After heavy chemotherapy she´s ready to go on tour again.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings will be perfomring in Berlin on May 10th at ASTRA-Kulturhaus in Berlin-Friedrichshain. And guess who´s already got the tickets burning in her pocket. You might want to get some, too.

To see the queen on stage is worth a lot of gold.

Here´s Sharon Jones singing “I Learned The Hard Way”. And I am on my knees again.
