Along with her older siblings, vocalist and songwriter Kathy Sledge was part of Sister Sledge, a Philadelphia-based soul group that released their first single in 1971 and became a major disco act later in the decade. Kathy sang lead on several of the group's biggest hits, including "He's the Greatest Dancer," "We Are Family," "Got to Love Somebody," and "All American Girls." In 1992, she signed with Epic as a solo artist and worked with several well-regarded producers, including Barry Eastmond, Bryan Loren, and LeMel Humes. Her solo album, Heart, featured the singles "Take Me Back to Love Again" and the ballad "All of My Love." The former topped Billboard's club chart. The album's inspiring title track was also released as a single and became a club hit. After she left Epic, Sledge continued to make club records with the likes of Robert Miles, King Britt & Sylk 130, and Aristofreeks.
