Really sad news - saw her & Dap-Kings at Birmingham 2005, tiny club, electric atmosphere. SJ like a pocket sized Tina Turner - totally rocked the place. RIP Sharon

I was fortunate to meet Sharon in Dublin, along with the Dap-Kings, spent a happy two hours in their company, then saw them live at a small venue in the City. She and they were ELECTRIC !

So sad that she never really got the full acclaim she deserved, however she never forgot her roots and her loyal army of fans World Wide.

RIP Sharon gone far too soon

I feel very sad about the news and i'm really shocked, since she just had survived the cancer,

ready for her comeback as told in the documentary movie.

I met her in person after a show and when she saw that i'd just bought the "Condition"-single, it was HER idea

to sign it with an autograph (i did not dare to ask for that). It felt very strange to the her autograph on it when i played it today...
