Sister Singing Groups

Introduction:Who were they and where did they go? They influenced a lot of our lives with their singing and the fact that they were sisters made it a little sweeter, a little nicer.......

    The Mcguire Sisters

    The Trio seems to be the most prominent in my mind going back to pre-school days and on up. They had good harmony and experienced years of success on the Arthur Godfrey show (now that's dating myself) performing for five presidents and the Queen. Who doesn't remember Phyllis first? She was the youngest but said to be the 'cutest' (they all resembled greatly) but the youngest in anything always seems to garner more popularity. The other two are Christine and Dorothy.

    The Lennon Sisters

    If anyone remembers the Lawrence Welk Show with that nice 'Champagne' music played before and after the show, you will remember that the Lennon sisters were sort of like the House Act. They were a pleasant quartet of sisters with sweet faces and wonderful voices. They consisted of Diane, Peggy, Kathy and Janet. They still perform today and still look very pleasant!

    The Pointer Sisters

    Bonnie pops into my mind first, always. They were talented, attractive and unique and performed diverse genres of music which included blues, soul, funk, dance, country, rock. They hailed from California. The song that comes to mind, big time is "I'm So Excited". They won Grammy awards as well. They consisted of Jane, Bonnie, Anita and Ruth. Bonnie's distinction is that she left the group to pursue a solo career!

    Sister's Sledge

    Well, I just might get the song "We are Family" stuck in my head again. It always happens. It's because they made such a mark with that tune in that scary genre DISCO. These are the girls that I only recently figured out their names. They're from Philly and are the granddaughters of former Opera Singer Viola Williams. Very impressive! Originally they called themselves "Mrs. Williams' Grandchildren". Now, I am so glad they went with Sisters Sledge. To be honest though, I loved "He's the Greatest Dancer" a fierce Disco tune. They have enjoyed a nice level of success and are extremely popular in the UK. And I am proud to say their names are Kim, Debbie and Joni!

    Emotions

    The Emotions are a trio of sisters who hailed from my own City, Chicago. They were originally known as the Hutchinson Sunbeams singing Gospel music. In 1968 they made their first secular hit "So I Can I Love You". The girls have experienced moderate fame, a few group changes and are a personal favorite of mine. The group consists of Wanda, Pamela and Sheila. They are in my age group and in February they will perform at one of our huge theaters. It's like we grew up together and I do plan to be there. I just love entertainers of the 60's and 70s.

    I'll probably be singing today. My grandparents loved to watch Lawrence Welk all the time. hf

    Nice listing of sister singing groups. There's something about the same type of voices harmonizing that make the music even more special.

    I remember the pointer sisters from my childhood in the 80's. Great list, now I must go listen to some music. :)

    My dad loved Lawrence Welk so my three sisters and I used to turn into the Lennon Sisters at a moment's notice. Guess which sister I was.

    Sister singing groups have such a great advantage they can practice often and blend their voices together to perfection. I like your choice of sister singing groups you chose. I did not know you local talent, but they must be GREAT if you are going to hear them perform. You have good taste.
