Wow ☹️ I just saw this movie the other day with my aunt and mom, and we all loved her performances in the film. She truly was so talented, I just can’t believe how we saw her dancing and singing; so alive and captivating with her voice… and now she is gone, so swiftly and suddenly. Truly a tragedy. 💔

Gone entirely too soon.
I was excited for Shonka’s success and looked forward to hearing more from her. She was so fantastic in the Elvis movie - I only wished they had shown more of her. Hopefully, more footage of Shona as Big Mama Thornton will be released soon. Rest In Peace, Ms. Dukureh. Prayers for her family.

I literally cried my eyes out. I discovered this wonderful soul through the elvis movie. She impacted me in a deep level and I smiled 😃

When I found out of her passing I was like woah. Why? Makes me wonder if God let her pass. RIP Shonka Dukureh you are in my ❤️ 💙
This is very sad, my sympathy goes to her dear children and her familly and may she rest in peace!
She was a 2nd grade teacher. She loved kids and loved the world. Elvis changed the world. But they BOTH made the world a better place with their incredible talents. Elvis would have paid for her funeral -- I hope to see Baz donate profits from the movie to Shonka's two children and start a trust fund for them - because that is what Elvis would have done.

Actually it WAS foul play. She was killed by "America's Doctor", just like Freddie Mercury, and millions of others.
