While musical history has recorded a lengthy list of performing family groups, there are but a handful who have truly transcended the genre - who are simply great musical units, regardless of their formal kinship. Four gifted young women who also happen to be real life sisters, Sister Sledge has clearly joined this elite club of performers. The dedication and strength of family has had a crucial influence on the girl's success, supporting the hard work, positive action and love that have gone into the creation of their music. With the encouragement of mother Flo (a successful entertainer in her own right), the Sledge sisters began singing at an early age at the Williams Tempe C.M.E. church in their hometown of Philadelphia. Grandmother Viola Williams (a former opera singer) had the girls performing at charities, civic and political affairs and other philanthropic events under the name "Mrs. William's Grandchildren."
