It is with a heavy heart that I report Bonnie Pointer (pictured on the left) of the incomparable group, The Pointer Sisters, has passed away.

She was 69.

Bonnie’s sister, Anita Pointer (pictured on the right), confirmed her passing telling TMZ:

It is with great sadness that I have to announce to the fans of The Pointer Sisters that my sister, Bonnie died this morning.

Our family is devastated, on behalf of my siblings and I and the entire Pointer family, we ask for your prayers at this time.

Bonnie was my best friend and we talked every day, we never had a fight in our life, I already miss her and I will see her again one day.

My sincerest condolences to the Pointer family during this difficult time.

Rest in paradise, Bonnie.
