The Pointer Sisters

The career of R&B group The Pointer Sisters already spans over five decades. At the start, the group consisted of just sisters: first, June, Anita, and Bonnie formed a trio; later, Ruth made the group a quartet. They were hugely successful in the 70s and 80s especially, scoring no less than 13 Top 20-hits in the US between 1973 and 1985 as well as receiving three Grammy Awards. Songs such as Jump (For My Love), Fire, Slow Hand, and I’m So Excited were huge hits. Bonnie was the first to leave the group; in the 90s June, who has since passed away, was replaced by Ruth’s daughter Issa. Nowadays, the band consists of Anita, Ruth, and Sadako, Ruth’s granddaughter. In the last few years, they have had much success performing with symphony orchestras.
