Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings share “I’m Still Here” from new documentary soundtrack — listen

Inspirational track details Jones’ struggles and anchors Barbara Kopple’s new film about the soul singer


For most people, the simple phrase “I’m Still Here” might not mean a great deal. But for Sharon Jones, it means everything. The dynamic soul singer and Dap-Kings frontwoman has struggled with adversity all her life, grinding her way to the top in spite of a record industry that challenged her at every turn. Jones’ 2013 battle with cancer was yet another challenge she tackled head-on, returning to the spotlight just one year later with 2014’s Give the People What They Want.

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have now shared “I’m Still Here”, an inspirational track that details Jones’ struggles and anchors Barbara Kopple’s new documentary film about the soul singer, Miss Sharon Jones!. The film will screen at select U.S. theaters this summer, starting with special Q&A events in New York (7/29) and Los Angeles (8/5).
