American singer Bonnie Pointer, one of the founding members of The Pointer Sisters Group, died Monday, according to her sister Anita Pointer.

My family is devastated by my siblings and me and the entire Pointer family, Anita Pointer said.
"We've never had a fight in our lives.

I've already missed him and will see him again one day." Bonnie Pointer died of cardiac arrest, his preacher Roger Neal said.

The four-pointer sisters began singing together more than 50 years ago in their hometown church in Oakland, California, where their father attended.

Bonnie Pointer and her younger sister started singing together professionally in June 1999.

They later hired older sisters Anita and Ruth to join them before their debut album debut in 1973.

The team won their first Grammy Award for their crossover hit "Fairytale" in 1974.

Bonnie Pointer recorded five albums with her sisters before her solo career.

He signed with Motown and hit the biggest single with the 1978 disco track "Heaven Must Have Sent You".

Pointer released three albums with Motown before retreating slightly from the spotlight, although he performed periodically over the years.

In her statement, Anita Pointer credited Bonnie for the success of their music family. "The Pointer Sisters would never have happened without Bonnie," he said.
