Singer, Patricia (Bonnie) Pointer, founding member of the famous sibling group The Pointer Sisters has died at the age of 69. Bonnie and her sisters began singing in her father's church, The West Oakland Church of God in Oakland, California. Her mother, the late Sarah Pointer, recalled in a 1974 interview "She had always told me, Mother, I want something for myself. I want to be somebody in this world". Bonnie recorded five albums with her sisters and co-wrote the country hit "Fairytale" with sister Anita, which won the group their first Grammy for Best Country Duo or Group in 1975. The song was later recorded by Elvis Presley. She left the group in the mid-1970s to pursue a solo career with Motown. Her biggest hit was 1978's "Heaven Must Have Sent You", which remains a Disco Classic. Because of Bonnie's talent, drive and determination the multi-Grammy winning Pointer Sisters exist and have had the great fortune of spending two decades at the top of the charts and close to 50 years performing to sold out audiences around the world. Bonnie is pre-deceased by her sister June Pointer and is survived by her brothers Aaron and Fritz and sisters Ruth and Anita Pointer.

NOW available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon. FAIRYTALE 3d.2

 
This Fairytale is four unique yet inseparable, inspiring, stories of June, Bonnie, Anita and Ruth Pointer.  In words and pictures –photographs and letters, Anita and Fritz Pointer (sister and brother) bring to life the exciting story of:migration during the 1940s Great Migration of Black Americans; fifteen family members living in one house; the deeply troubling dismissal of their father from the church he helped to build; Bonnie and Anita’s founding membership in the Northern California Black Panther Party; the Sisters serendipitous discovery by producer David Rubinson.Here, also, are stories of love and companionship, fierce individuality and competition. For their debut performance in San Francisco, picture: four Billie Holidays and, surprise, the band in KKK costumes; later, a mob carrying signs that say “Keep Country White” at the Grand Ole Opry.   Refusing to be intimidated or pigeonholed, The Pointer Sisters “broke the mold” for female performing groups, by amazingly, singing all styles of music with honesty and conviction: Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Country  & Western, Rhythm & Blues and Pop. They received three Grammy and three American Music Awards; a Hollywood Star, and performed at the S.F. Opera House, at the Mohamed Ali v. George Foreman championship fight in Zaire,
Africa, at Carnegie Hall and the White House; their lives, even today, are stunning and triumphant. Collectively, and individually, when it was time, June, Bonnie, Anita and Ruth cared for and supported their parents, their own children and grandchildren in sickness and in health.  They have made their presence on this planet matter.
