With dance floors all over the world set alight with the contagious joy and expression in their music, Sister Sledge is blessed and honored to have provided the soundtrack to countless lives. Hailing from Philadelphia PA, Sister Sledge has become a shining symbol of unity with their 1979 world-wide hit and iconic album ‘We are Family’.
The multi-lead vocal group are responsible for some of the biggest dance anthems of all time. Lost in Music, He’s the Greatest Dancer and Thinking of You are universally cherished songs that bring people together in love, life and soulful groove.
Sister Sledge has performed on some of the world’s most prestigious stages including Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, London’s Royal Albert Hall and Glastonbury’s iconic Pyramid Stage. They have also performed for the Clintons at the White House, and even before the honourable Pope Francis himself during the 2015 World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, PA.
Over the years, the family-group has amassed a string of Gold and Platinum hits, generating total sales of over 20,000,000 worldwide, and earning hundreds of awards and commendations including GRAMMY Nominations for Record of the Year, Best R&B Duo or Group, and Best Produced CD for (Joni Sledge’s work on) their ‘African Eyes’ album. Their worldwide anthem We Are Family was entered in to the prestigious Library of Congress in 2017.
Tragically, Joni Sledge passed away in March of 2017, but in 2019/20 Debbie Sledge, Camille Sledge, Thaddeus Sledge (Joni’s son), David Sledge and Tanya Tiet continue to tour with their incredible band, honouring Joni’s life and bringing their authentic grooves to people of all ages and colors, and upholding the true meaning of one of the greatest songs of all time…
We are Family!
