We recently lost Bonnie Pointer, a founding member of The Pointer Sisters. The Pointer Sisters' origin story begins in Oakland, California. They grew up in West Oakland, learning to sing gospel as children (their father was a reverend who believed that blues and rock 'n' roll was the music of the devil). But The Pointer Sisters took on a myriad of genres including, R&B, Disco, pop, funk, jazz, disco, electronic music, country, blues, and rock (sorry, dad). One common misconception about the band is that it comprised the same three sisters. But having come from a large family, the group began as a quartet before scaling down to a trio, with members including Ruth Pointer, Issa Pointer, Sadako Pointer, Anita Pointer, Bonnie Pointer, and June Pointer. This playlist boasts their most famous hits as well as some deeper cuts and fan favorites.
Pandora I grew up listening to their music, such talent, such energy when they performed on television. They were great. I did not know they lost a member in their group. Thanks for the info. Thanks for posting Pandora. Take care and stay safe.
