JONI SLEDGE, who with her sisters recorded the enduring dance anthem “We Are Family,” has died, the band’s representative said Saturday. She was 60.
Sledge was found dead in her home by a friend in Phoenix ECCO Hombre Intrinsic Sneakers Negras Rebajas , Arizona, on Friday, the band’s publicist, Biff Warren, said. A cause of death has not been determined. He said she had not been ill.
“On yesterday ECCO Helsinki Bike Toe Slip On Negras Rebajas , numbness fell upon our family. We welcome your prayers as we weep the loss of our sister, mother, aunt, niece and cousin,” read a family statement.
Sledge and her sisters Debbie ECCO Holton Apron Toe Slip On Negras Rebajas , Kim and Kathy formed the Sister Sledge in 1971 in Philadelphia, their hometown, but struggled for years before success came.
“The four of us had been in the music business for eight years and we were frustrated. We were saying: ‘Well, maybe we should go to college and just become lawyers or something other than music, because it really is tough ECCO Classic Moc 2.0 Negras Rebajas ,’” Joni told The Guardian in an interview last year.
But then they met Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of the hit group Chic, and their breakout soon came. The pair wrote and produced their album “We Are Family,” and soon the women had their first major hit with disco jam “The Greatest Dancer,” which became a top 10 hit in May 1979.
But their biggest hit came a month later with the title track, an infectious dance anthem that celebrated their familial connection with the refrain ECCO Hombre Soft 7 High Top Leather Negras Rebajas , “We are family, I got all my sisters with me.”
While it celebrated their sisterhood, the 1979 hit also became an anthem for female empowerment and unity. It would become their signature hit, and was nominated for a Grammy. Both the song and album sold more than 1 million copies. The women also had a hit with a cover of the Mary Wells song “My Guy” in 1982, but would never duplicate the success they had in the 1970s. Still ECCO Hombre Whistler Gtx High Botas Amber Negras Rebajas , Sister Sledge continued; while sister Kathy left the group for a solo career, the trio of sisters continued to perform and record, including a performance for Pope Francis in 2015.
Warren said they last performed together in concert in October.
Joni Sledge is survived by an adult son, her sisters and other relatives.

If you are having one or both of your feet operated on in the near future ECCO Johannesburg Gtx Botas Negras Rebajas , your foot surgeon is not the only one who needs to prepare. Do yourself a favor and make sure you are ready for the operation before it starts.
Having your feet operated on can be an extremely difficult endeavor that your foot surgeon can't prepare you for alone. In the end, patients need to make sure that they are adequately prepared before surgeons can do their job.
As you plan out and eventually approach the day of your operation, your foot surgeon will be able to help you prepare mentally and physically for what to expect. At the same time, he or she can't do it all; there is a significant amount of responsibility that lies with the patient when it comes to getting ready for an operation.
The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that you are adequately prepared for all of the various ramifications of a major operation. This starts with the fact that you will likely be incapacitated and off of your feet for several months once you are out of the hospital, and you must account for this when planning things such as work ECCO Helsinki Cap Tie Negras Rebajas , family tasks and even things like vacation.
