Patricia “Bonnie” Pointer (born on July 11, 1951 in Oakland, California) is an American R&B and disco singer most notable for being the next-to-youngest member of the popular 1970s and 1980s family music group, The Pointer Sisters. She scored several solo hits after leaving the Pointers in 1977 including a disco cover of the Elgins’ “Heaven Must Have Sent You” in 1978.

Bonnie and youngest sister June began singing together as teenagers and in 1969 the duo had co-founded The Pointers (otherwise known as The Pair). After Anita joined the duo that same year, they changed their name to The Pointer Sisters and recorded several singles for Atlantic between 1971 and 1972. In 1972, they recruited oldest sister Ruth and released their debut as The Pointer Sisters in 1973. Their self-titled debut yielded the big hit, “Yes We Can Can”, which put the Pointers on the musical map.

Between 1973 and 1977, the Pointers’ original look - displaying 1940s fashions and singing in a style reminiscent of the Andrew Sisters, the group also melded the sounds of R&B, funk, rock & roll, gospel, country and soul. It was Anita and Bonnie who wrote the group’s crossover country hit, “Fairytale,” in 1974, which also became a top 20 pop hit and helped won the group their first Grammy for country. Anita and Bonnie also were nominated for Best Country Song at the same ceremony.
