Sister Sledge

Amphitheater Stage

With dance floors from 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 household name and a symbol of unity with their 1979 worldwide hit and iconic album ‘We are Family’. The multi-lead vocal group of four dynamic performers are responsible for some of the biggest dance anthems of all time. Lost in Music, He’s the Greatest Dancer, Thinking of You, and We Are Family are universally cherished songs that bring people together in love, life and soulful groove.

From early on, the four young women experienced international success by winning the Silver Award in Japan at the 1974 Tokyo Music Festival, and continued to gain popularity with their 1975 appearance at the legendary ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ concert during the Muhammed Ali vs George Foreman boxing match event in Zaire, Africa. Their amazing careers continued to sky rocket when World Champion – Pittsburgh Pirates adopted the group’s hit recording, ‘We Are Family’ as their team anthem, winning the 1979 World Series. Sister Sledge has performed for the former presidential family, the Clintons at the White House, and even before the Honorable Pope Francis himself during the 2015 World Meeting ofFamilies, held in Philadelphia, PA.

Over the years, the group has amassed a string of Gold and Platinum hits, generating total sales of over 200,000,000 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.
