Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings share 'White Christmas' video
Soul singer Sharon Jones released her first holiday album, It’s A Holiday Soul Party, in October, and now she’s shared a Christmas-themed video to match. The video for “White Christmas” shows Jones as she dances and sings with her suit-wearing band The Dap-Kings in a white studio filled with wreaths.
It’s A Holiday Soul Party also pays its dues to other seasonal celebrations, like on album opener “8 Days (Of Hanukkah).” “It’s so great to put out a holiday record after almost twenty years, and it is thrilling to share a Hanukkah soul song,” Jones told Billboard in August. “I was able to portray my gospel upbringing on the piano, and the Dap-Kings added their soulful flavor to old classics and a few original songs.”
Jones announced in September that after an initial diagnosis in 2013, her pancreatic cancer had returned. At the time she said she was shortly beginning chemotherapy treatment.
