We will miss you so much sharon
2 December 2016 | by midnight_cinephileSee all my reviews

Massive respect to the folks involved in making this wonderful film We are selflessly afforded an inside look at the strength and courage of this dynamic,inspirational woman's life. I feel lucky to have seen Sharon and the Dap kings many times and this film just reinforces her legacy and legend. Having been around several cancer afflicted people in my family this documentary hits home for me on multiple levels. This inside look at the Boldest Soul Sister is real,fearless,poignant,hopeful and gracious. Thankfully someone realized that Sharon is a national treasure and a portion of her life needed to be documented. What an incredible gift she had! Sharon made the world a better place. Her infectious high energy,incredible one of a kind voice and legendary stage presence are laid bare for all to see. This is the real thing,and it is something we will not see the likes of any time soon. GENUINE Rest in Paradise Sharon ,we love you and miss you already. Amen Sister.
