    June Pointer-Whitmore was the youngest of the Pointer Sisters, born on November 30, 1953 in Oakland, California & dead of cancer on April 12, 2006 at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica, California at 52 years old.

    Prior to the Pointer Sisters getting their start as a quartet in the early 70's, both June & elder sister Bonnie originally sang as a duo, calling themselves Pointers-A-Pair. June also stepped out on her own many times; 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 & "I'm Ready For Love", another song from the same album was a minor pop hit in the States. Both preceded the group's phenomenally successful album Break Out (Version I) which would also come out later that year.

    In 1986, the Pointers, with June on lead vocal, joined Bruce Willis for his cover of the classic "Respect Yourself", which featured the Sisters both on vinyl & in the video. The single climbed to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 & was certified gold thanks in large part to the Sisters' vocal talents & specifically June's solo performance in the video, which itself became one of the biggest clips on MTV of the year.

    June has also done other side projects while still remaining a member of the Pointer Sisters proper. In 1987, June recorded a duet with Dionne Warwick, "Heartbreak Of Love", for Dionne's duets album Reservations For Two. June released her self-titled second solo album in 1989 & continued to tour live with sisters Anita & Ruth until 2001, when she decided to leave the group to pursue other interests.
