June Antoinette Pointer Whitmore (November 30, 1953 – April 11, 2006) was an American Pop/R&B singer and was a founding member of the vocal group The Pointer Sisters.

Born the youngest of six to minister parents, June shared a love for singing with her sisters. In 1969, she and sister Bonnie founded The Pointers - A Pair. The duo became a trio later on that year when Anita quit her job as a secretary to join them; the group changed its name to The Pointer Sisters. After failed singles with Atlantic Records, eldest sister Ruth was enlisted to join the group in 1972. The sisters then signed with Blue Thumb, and their careers finally began taking off.

The Pointer Sisters and solo career:

Releasing their self-titled debut album in 1973, The Pointer Sisters found fame with pop hit singles such as “Yes We Can Can”, the country hit, “Fairytale”, and the R&B hits, “How Long (Betcha Got a Chick on the Side)” and “You Gotta Believe” before Bonnie exited from the group to forge a solo career in 1977.

The remaining sisters continued on as a trio and then found huge success, hitting the Top 10 with a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Fire” (1978), then following that with “He’s So Shy” (1980), and “Slow Hand” (1981). They then would released what would be their biggest album to date, 1983’s Break Out, which included the hits “Automatic”; “Jump (for My Love)”; a re-release of “I’m So Excited”, which became a bigger hit than when originally released in 1982; and Neutron Dance”. Other hits from follow up albums included “Dare Me” “Freedom” and “Goldmine”. June is notable for being the lead singer of “He’s So Shy”, “Jump (For My Love)”, “Baby Come And Get It” and “Dare Me” among others.
