Bonnie Pointer

Powered by imdb

Singer/songwriter Patricia "Bonnie" Pointer was born on July 11, 1950 in Oakland, California. She's the second youngest member of the hugely popular and successful soul/R&B group The Pointer Sisters. Bonnie began singing in the choir of her father Reverend Elton Pointer's church. In 1969 Bonnie formed a duo with her younger sister June called Pointers, A Pair. The group became a trio after Anita Pointer joined in 1969 and eventually evolved into a quartet when Ruth Pointer joined in 1972. Bonnie recorded five albums with The Pointer Sisters and co-wrote such songs as "How Long" and the 1974 Grammy Award-winning breakthrough hit "Fairytale." She left the group to pursue a solo career in 1977. In 1976 Bonnie sang vocals on Bill Wyman's 1976 album "Stone Alone." Moreover, Bonnie co-wrote the song "Bring Your Sweet Stuff Home to Me" for Stevie Wonder's album "Having a Party." In 1978 Bonnie married Motown Records producer Jeffrey Bowen and released her self-titled debut solo album; the disco song "Heaven Must Have Sent You" peaked at #11 on the Billboard pop charts (this song was featured on the soundtrack to the 1998 film "54"). In 1979 Bonnie released her second album. Her third album "If The Price is Right" came out in 1984. Bonnie sings the songs "Heaven" and "The Beast in Me" on the soundtrack to the movie "Heavenly Bodies." She has twice reunited with The Pointer Sisters: she attended the ceremony for the unveiling of the star for group on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1994 and joined her siblings on stage for a concert performance of "Jump (For My Love)" in Las Vegas, Nevada on New Years Eve in 1996. Bonnie still continues to perform all over the country and has appeared at several Gay Pride celebrations throughout the United States. In early 2008 Bonnie Pointer embarked on a concert tour of Europe.  See full bio on IMDb »
