Rest in peace Joni Sledge
Looks like 2017 is surely shaping itself up to what 2016 was, robbing us of quality and great entertainers. Today it was Joni Sledge, the founder of the group Sister Sledge. Sister Sledge formed in 1971 and went on to record such hits as “We Are Family,” “He’s the Greatest Dancer,” “Frankie” and more. The Grammy-nominated “We Are Family,” released in 1979, peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100; the song also topped the R&B and disco charts. The album of the same name reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
Rest in peace Joni. You are surely up there with a whole host of others who left us last year, and this year. You will be missed,
