This morning (12 March, 2017) I woke up to the sad news that Joni Sledge has passed away at the age of 60. I am a big Sister Sledge fan, loved their music; ‘Thinking of You’ became my anthem from the age of 16 and I spent my disco years making memories to Sister Sledge.
So, it was my biggest personal moment to have been able to interview Joni Sledge a few months ago about her hopes for change and women’s empowerment. I could not believe that I my 16-year-old self would have this opportunity years and years later, reinforcing my belief that life is full of surprises and serendipity.
Here’s the full interview…’Thinking of You’ Joni, RIP.
