Sister Sledge is an American musical vocal
group from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formed in 1971, the group consisted of
sisters Debbie, Joni, Kim and Kathy Sledge. Symbolizing strong family values,
the siblings achieved international success at the height of the disco era.
The year 1979 saw the release of their breakthrough album We Are Family,
which peaked at number three on the US Album Chart and went Platinum. The
album included the 1979 single "We Are Family" which reached number
two on the US Billboard Hot 100 and earned them a Grammy Award nomination,
together with two other 1979 top 20 international hits "He's the
Greatest Dancer" and "Lost in Music".
Their other US hits include a 1982 remake of
Mary Wells' 1964 hit, "My Guy", and other international hits
include "Mama Never Told Me" (1975), "Thinking of You"
(1984), before reaching number one on the UK Singles Chart with the song
"Frankie" in 1985. Remixed versions of three of their singles in
1993 returned them to the UK Top 20. Following Kathy's departure in 1989, the
group then operated as a trio (with Kathy occasionally re-joining for one-off
performances and several releases in the 1990s) until Joni's death in 2017. In
2015, Sister Sledge performed for Pope Francis at the World Festival of
Families in Philadelphia.
