SISTER SLEDGE from Philadelphia have been performing together since the early 1970s as teenagers.
It wasn't until 1979, when Chic leaders Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards produced the album "We Are Family" that Sister Sledge really exploded commercially. "He's The Greatest Dancer" and "We Are Family" both became hits in the USA and internationally. Sister Sledge went on to record double platinum success on their next several albums. Most well known for their trademark disco sound, alot of their later work presented a marked contrast, including their massive 1985 UK number 1 "Frankie".
