Now as she prepares to release her much-anticipated new album, Sharon comes face-to-face with the greatest challenge of her life: a grave cancer diagnosis. Follow this tour de force over the course of an eventful and remarkable year as she struggles to hold her band The Dap Kings together while battling her way back to the stage with the unstoppable determination of a true soul survivor.
