This Year's Entertainment
A mix of pop, disco, rock & roll and R&B, the music of The Pointer Sisters has spanned 40 years of chart breaking hits like "I'm So Excited," "Jump (For My Love)," and "He's So Shy." The Pointer Sisters began their formal vocal training in their father's church and went on to achieve worldwide fame and a place in pop music history as a dynamic female group! Their 1973 debut album was certified gold and the group went on to score with the hit, "Yes We Can Can," which reached #11 on Billboard magazine's pop singles chart. The group had become the most talked-about new act of the year.
Original members Anita and Ruth Pointer - along with the fresh addition of Sadako Johnson - maintain a busy touring schedule and take the music of The Pointer Sisters all over the world. In recent years, the group has performed with some of the greatest symphony orchestras in the North America including San Francisco, Jacksonville, Atlanta's symphony orchestra and the renowned Boston Pops. Their talents have taken them from private concerts to the big screen, starring in movies and television with some of Hollywood's most talented artists.
