“I hope people don’t expect a lot because all I do is go out there and be me,” [Sharon Jones] says. “The band comes out, they introduce me, I come out, I dance, I sing, I interact with the audience. I love when I can get people up to dance. I dance, I jump around. I don’t know. I just be guided. Before I go on that stage every night I have that prayer. Me and my girls say a prayer with me before I walk on, I say that extra prayer. That prayer is: “Give me the right things to say, Lord. The right things to come out of my mouth.” And that’s what I do.” [Syracuse New Times]
