There are a handful of songs that are so popular that it takes only one person to sing a couple of words, and you have a group singing along. Joni Sledge, along with her sisters, was one of the singers that rose to fame with one hit, 'We Are Family'. Unfortunately, last week she was found dead in her home in Phoenix, Arizona, where she allegedly passed due to natural causes. Although the Sister Sledge group was at its peak in the 70s, three of the four members of the group performed one last time in October so many people's memories of the group will remain fresh in their mind. Rest in peace and may her memory live on forever.
