LOS ANGELES: Anita Pointer has died at the age of 74.

Citing a CNN report, the group’s publicist, Roger Neal, informed that Pointer died yesterday at his home in Los Angeles with family members by his side.

According to one of the family members, although saddened by Anita’s passing, it is a relief to think that she is now with her daughter, Jada and her sisters June and Bonnie.

“Heaven is a more loving and beautiful place with Anita’s presence there.

“Anita made us all close. His love for the family will live on in us,” he said, adding that the family requested that the family’s privacy be respected during this period of mourning.

The four Pointer Sisters began their singing careers more than 50 years ago in a church in Oakland, California, where their father served.

Bonnie Pointer and her youngest sister June made their debut as a singing duo in 1969. They later recruited Anita and Ruth to join them, before releasing their first album together in 1973.

The group won their first Grammy Award for “Fairytale,” in 1974. They are also known for hits such as “Slow Hand,” “Neutron Dance” and “Jump.”

The group won three Grammy Awards and topped the US Top 20 chart 13 times between 1973 and 1985.
