  • NEW YORK (AP) — Soul singer Sharon Jones has cancer and has canceled plans for an album and tour in 2013.

    A Monday news release says Jones has stage-one bile duct cancer and needs immediate surgery.

    Jones and her band, the Dap-Kings, had planned to release “Give the People What They Want” on Aug. 6 and were already touring. The singer was forced to miss a few shows recently while looking for a cause of her illness.

    The release says that doctors caught the tumor early and that the cancer hasn’t spread. They expect the 57-year-old to make a full recovery.

    Jones says she’ll stay in touch with fans and keep them updated on her condition.
