R&B and disco singer-songwriter Kathy Sledge is set to perform at Rivers Casino on Friday, Sept. 2, at 8 p.m.
Sledge is best known as the youngest and founding member of the Philly-based vocal group Sister Sledge, which she formed along with her sisters Joni, Kim and Debbie in 1971. Their 1979 hits “He’s the Greatest Dancer” and “We Are Family” both charted in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, with the latter also earning a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.
In addition, Sledge has released several hits as a solo artist, including 1992’s “Take Me Back to Love Again,” which reached the top spot of the Billboard dance chart, from her debut solo album Heart.
“It’s an honor to host such a legendary local star in our Event Center,” said Justin Moore, the general manager of Rivers Casino, in a press release. “The crowd will be singing all night long to her music and her family’s timeless classic hits.”
