President Obama Wishes Sharon Jones A Speedy Recovery After White House Cancellation
President Obama and South by South West teamed up for the very first South by South Lawn festival today, bringing together musicians and community leaders for a day celebrating positive change. Among the many performers scheduled for the event was Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, bringing their unique brand of soul to the White House lawn.Unfortunately, health has been an on-and-off issue for Sharon Jones, who last year informed her fans that her cancer had returned. The singer had to cancel her appearance due to a bout of pneumonia, and the Dap-Kings were forced to perform without her at the festival.Naturally, our nation’s president wants the best for Ms. Jones, and sent her a get well soon note that she recently shared on social media. Check out the note from the president, below.Get well soon Ms. Jones!
