In the history of recorded music, there have been only a handful of musical groups which have managed to transcend time, genre, and culture…and Sister Sledge is indisputably one of these.
As a unique, multi-faceted, multi-lead-vocal group, any one of the sisters could have chosen to pursue a solo career, each being an accomplished vocalist, songwriter, producer and performer. Early on, however, they recognized the mantle of “family” and the strength in unity that would later inspire a generation.
Having set the worlds dance floors on fire with “He’s The Greatest Dancer,” the albums next release, the seminal title track, “We Are Family” skyrocketed the group in to the musical stratosphere. Perfectly demonstrating the group’s ability to uplift, inspire and unify, “We Are Family” became the theme song for the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates and was sung live by the sisters at the World Series opening game. The hit songs “Lost in music,” “Thinking of You” and “All American Girls” followed, helping to cement the group’s status as industry front-runners.
Today, Kathy Sledge of the original Sister Sledge remains in the international spotlight and continues to champion and support the importance and value of family while touring and performing to capacity crowds the world over. With Joni’s passionate and sassy vocals and unique creative style, Debbie’s wide and agile vocal ranges and an exceptionally talented band, the group’s combined artistry is magical!
