The Pointer Sisters began their vocal careers in their father's church, The Church of God in West Oakland, California. Their first performance in Los Angeles at the Troubadour club was hailed by critics for its versatility and range and named The Pointer Sisters "the most exciting thing to hit show business in years." Their 1973 debut album with the single, "Yes We Can, Can," reached #11 on Billboard magazine's Pop singles chart. The following year, the sisters released another album that included a Country-Western tune, "Fairytale," written by the sisters. The single hit big on both the Country and Pop charts. As a result, the sisters became the first black female group to ever perform at the Grand Ole Opry. In 1975, "Fairytale" won the sisters their first Grammy Award, “Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group.”

Changing their style, the sisters signed with Planet Records recording a Rock 'n Roll album. The group's debut single, Bruce Springsteen's "Fire," went all the way to #2 on the Pop charts and went gold. Boosted by "Fire," the Energy album was certified gold and another top single "Happiness". In 1980, the group released Special Things; featuring the song "He's So Shy" that went to #3 and gold. In 1981, the group released Black & White, including one of the biggest hits of the year, "Slow Hand." The single topped out at #2 on the Billboard charts and became an anthem for women across the country.

The title of their 1983 album summed up exactly what the trio was about to do: Break Out. When Ruth took the lead for "Automatic," her deeper-than-deep vocals practically leapt off the vinyl, and helped the single go all the way to #5. The Pointer Sisters landed all over MTV, becoming one of the first black acts to be played in heavy rotation. "Jump (for my love)" raced to #3 on the Pop charts. "I'm So Excited" hit the Top 10 and became a Pointer classic! To date, the song has been played over 2.5 million times on radio. "Neutron Dance," featuring Ruth's gospel-spiked shouts, rose to #6 on the Pop charts as its video dominated MTV. Finally, Break Out spawned a sixth single, "Baby Come And Get It." The success of the album earned the sisters two Grammy Awards, “Best Vocal by a Duo or Group” for "Jump" and “Best Vocal Arrangement” for "Automatic," and two American Music Awards. Break Out was certified triple-platinum, making it the biggest selling album of the Pointer Sisters' career.

The group made a move to RCA Records, releasing their Contact album in 1985. Within three weeks of its release, Contact was certified platinum and the group went on to win another American Music Award for “Best Video Group.”  In late 1986, the Pointer Sisters released their second album with RCA, Hot Together, which spawned a top 40 hit with "Goldmine."  1993 marked the Pointer Sisters 20th year in the recording industry, celebrating with a new album, Only Sisters Can Do That, each wrote material for the album. Fans and critics alike sang the record's praises--Entertainment Weekly, for one, called the album "catchier than…Janet Jackson" and proclaimed it "the catchiest Sisters set since 1984's hit-packed Break Out."
In 1994 the ladies received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That same day, it was announced that the group would begin a world-wide tour of the Fats Waller musical, Ain't Misbehavin', for 46 weeks and recorded a cast album. The sisters went on to be honored on the Soul of American Music Awards and were also inducted into the Soul Train Hall of Fame. They performed a special concert at the White House for then President Clinton. In 1996, they were one of the legendary acts that performed at the closing ceremony of the Olympics in Atlanta.  In 2004, the group recorded a live CD/DVD, which captured the energetic Pointers performing the hits that fans of all ages continue to enjoy!
