ARTIEST: Sister Sledge

Amerika

While musical history has recorded a lengthy list of performing family groups, there are but a handful who have truly transcended the genre - who are simply great musical units, regardless of their formal kinship. Four gifted women who also happen to be sisters, Sister Sledge has clearly joined this elite club of performers. The dedication and strength of family has had a crucial influence on the girl's success, supporting the hard work, positive action and love that have gone into the creation of their music. With the encouragement of mother Flo the Sledge sisters began singing at an early age in church in Philadelphia. Grandmother Viola Williams had the girls performing at charities, civic and political affairs and other philanthropic events under the name "Mrs. William's Grandchildren."
Since the 1979 release of their album We Are Family, this remarkable group has continued to develop and expand their diverse talents, blossoming into multi-faced artists who have received over 100 awards and commendations for outstanding work in the entertainment field. Highlights include Billboard Artist of the Year and Two Grammy Nominations for Best R&B Duo or Group and Record of the Year.
SISTER SLEDGE became established as one of the world's most successful female groups, setting off a series of events which made the group virtually a household name. We Are Family became a worldwide family anthem and was adopted by the Pittsburgh Pirates as the team theme. That year, the Pirates claimed victory over the Baltimore Orioles, winning the World Series. Ultimately the album soared past the RIAA Platinum mark, hitting the very top of both Pop and R&B charts.
In the 80's they sold millions of records worldwide and traveled extensively in Asia, Africa, throughout Europe, the Middle East, South America, Australia and the United States, earning rave reviews. "Sister Sledge has the stuff legends are made of," stated one critic from the Chicago Tribune.
