Issa Pointer (born Issa Kuren Edwards Pointer on January 22, 1978 in California) is the daughter of Pointer Sisters member Ruth Pointer and former Temptations member Dennis Edwards, from their relationship in 1977.[1] Brought up under the guidance of her mother and her aunts, Pointer first embarked in music while on the road with the Pointer Sisters during the group's 1985 tour. Later on, she contributed to some songs with the group for various albums. In 2002, she started replacing group founder June Pointer, who left initially for drug problems and then decided to carry out a solo career, with Issa Pointer permanently replacing her aunt in 2004. Together with her mother and aunt Anita Pointer, the Pointers are currently enjoying a successful revival in Europe with their duet single with Natalia on a cover of Aretha Franklin and Annie Lennox's "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves", which reached number 2 on the charts in Belgium.
