JONI SLEDGE, one of the Fabulous Four SISTERS SLEDGE passed away at the too early age of 60. Of course the girls are best known for their Superhit in 1979, WE ARE FAMILY.
They were cute, they could sing and they could dance, with that combination they had to be successful. The four Sledge Sisters: Kim Sledge, Debbie Sledge, Kathy Sledge, and Joni Sledge came out of Philadelphia in 1972 and hit the big time with "Family." So raise your wings and soar Joanie, you're going to the place where the party is never-ending and all your friends and peers are ready to bring you into their families, Rock and Roll Heaven.
One more time here are the Sisters Sledge with their Top Pop Hit. Rock On. @therealdonrocks
