Anita Pointer ~ Inducted in the 1998 Arkansas Black Hall Of Fame ~ Nurtured in the church and seasoned by a lifelong interest in different musical flavors, she has incorporated an abundance of influences into a sound that is, exuberant, joyful, sultry, powerful, and always unforgettable. By the early 1970â€ēs Anita had redefined her voice to such an exacting point that rock luminaries like Dave Mason, Taj Mahal and Elvin Bishop were soliciting Anita for her phenomenal vocal services. ~ 1998 © Arkansas Black Hall Of Fame

The Pointer Sisters

The Pointer Sisters were as chameleonic as David Bowie, if not more so. The sibling group backed Grace Slick and Boz Scaggs, made stops at Sesame Street and the Grand Ole Opry, won a country Grammy, and appeared in the movie Car Wash, all before scoring four consecutive Top Ten Billboard Hot 100 hits in the mid-‘80s. From their early ‘70s releases on Blue Thumb through their ‘80s commercial run on Planet and RCA, the Pointers moved through boogie-woogie, bebop, blues, country, funk, disco, soft rock, electro-pop, hard rock, and several other subgenres as if they were all second nature. The sisters covered Willie Dixon, were covered by Elvis Presley, and released 15 Top 40 Hot 100 singles while sustaining a steady presence on the R&B, club, and adult contemporary charts. ~ Allmusic: Pointer Sisters ~ retrieved March 11, 2014 © Allmusic
