Biography

Kathy Sledge (Jan. 6, 1959 )sang lead on Sister Sledge’s hits “He’s the Greatest Dancer,” “We Are Family,” “Lost in Music,” “Got to Love Somebody,” “Reach Your Peak,” “All American Girls,” “My Guy,” and “B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Baby).”

The Sledge sisters, Debra, Joni, Kim, and Kathy starting singing in church as “Mrs.Williams’ Grandchildren” in their native Philadelphia, PA. Debra was the first to start school. After she joined the glee club, she come back home and taught harmony to her sisters. Sister Sledge started performing professionally in their teens. In 1971, they released their first single, under the name Sisters Sledge, on the Money Back label.

A few years later, Sister Sledge signed with Atlantic Records’ Atco subsidiary. The quartet was teamed with the hit production duo of former Main Ingredient Tony “Champagne” Sylvester and Bert “Super Charts” DeCoteaux (Ben E. King’s hits “Supernatural Thing,” “Do It In The Name of Love”). Their first major label single, the dazzling “Love Don’t Go Through No Changes On Me” — written by Patrick Adams (Black Ivory, Inner Life, Phreek, Skipworth & Turner, Musique) and actress Fay Hauser — b/w the tender ballad “Don’t You Miss Him” was a hit, making it to number 31 R&B in late 1974. Both were included on their debut LP Circle of Love. In the group’s encircled album cover photo, a teenaged, pig-tailed Kathy is all smiles.
