The 57-year old front lady for the Dap-Kings is in early stage one of the cancer and doctors give her an excellent chance of recovery after surgery.

“Over the last few weeks I haven’t felt good and I didn’t know what was going on,” Jones said in her statement. “We just found out that I have a stage-one tumor on my bile duct. Luckily we caught it really early and fast and the doctors say it’s operable and curable!”

Jones excepts to go through a lengthy recovery and rehabilitation period and has placed all future shows and the release of her next album on hold.
