June Pointer was a member of a very special group of musicians: women who made their mark on the music world alongside their sisters. She was still a teen when she formed the Pointers-A Pair with her sister Bonnie. Sister Anita soon joined them and they became the Pointer Sisters; sister Ruth jumped on board in 1972. When Bonnie left the group in 1977, they were well on their way to the massive fame they achieved in the 1980s with hits including "He's So Shy" and "Jump."
June Pointer died of cancer April 11, 2006. In her memory, we're looking at pictures of the Pointer Sisters and other sister acts. When these families got together, they made beautiful music. Click on any photo for more information.
