With dance floors all over the world set alight with the contagious joy and expression in their music, Sister Sledge have provided the soundtrack to countless lives.
Hailing from Philadelphia, Sister Sledge became a household name and a symbol of unity with their 1979 worldwide hit and iconic album We are Family. The multi-lead vocal group are responsible for some of the biggest dance anthems of all time. ‘Lost in Music’, ‘He’s the Greatest Dancer’, ‘Thinking of You’, and ‘We Are Family’ are universally cherished songs that bring people together in love, life and soulful groove.
From early on, the four young women experienced international success by winning the Silver Award in Japan at the 1974 Tokyo Music Festival, and continued to gain popularity with their 1975 appearance at the legendary ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ concert during the Muhammed Ali vs George Foreman boxing match. Their amazing careers continued to sky rocket when World Champion – Pittsburgh Pirates adopted the group’s hit recording, ‘We Are Family’ as their team anthem, winning the 1979 World Series. Sister Sledge has performed at the White House, and even before the Honourable Pope Francis at the 2015 World Meeting of Families.
