(Born: November 30, 1953) The youngest of the four Pointer Sisters is June. She and her sister Bonnie originally sang as a duo, calling themselves Pointers-A Pair.
June, known by some fans as the energetic rock & roller, has stepped out on her own many times, even posing in Playboy magazine. Her solo recording career debuted with the release of 1983's Baby Sister on Planet Records. The single "Ready for Some Action" reached the Top 30 on the R&B charts. Another song from the album "I'm Ready for Love," can be found on The Very Best of The Pointer Sisters, released on RCA in 1996.
In 1986, the Pointers, with June on lead vocal, joined Bruce Willis for the lively "Respect Yourself." The single, from Willis' debut, The Return of Bruno, reached the Top Five on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles Chart, and June's solo performance in the video helped it become one of MTV's most popular clips at the time. A year later, June recorded a duet with Dionne Warwick, "Heartbreak of Love," for Dionne's 1987 album, Reservations for Two.
June's second solo release was 1989's June Pointer (Columbia Records). The album was executive produced by Carol Bayer Sager and features a potpourri of other producers, including Narada Michael Walden, Kashif, David Foster and Rhett Lawrence. Released to enthusiastic reviews from fans and critics alike, the album spawned the R&B chart single, "Tight On Time (I'll Fit U In)."
Some songs that are fan favorites with June on lead vocal: "Jump (For My Love)", "Dare Me", "He's So Shy", "Happiness", "Fall In Love Again" and "Baby Come And Get It".
