As part of their Nothing Greater Than Love campaign to lend their voices for those who are making a positive difference to the world, Sister Sledge perform We Are Family
The iconic all female music group Sister Sledge recently supported the Blue Star Families, a group of military spouses who provide free resources, services, and opportunities to family members of military personnel, with a special performance of We Are Family at the Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC. The unique event honoured the exceptional Americans who have gone above and beyond to help military families as well as the brave service men and women.
The special visit was part of Sister Sledge’s Nothing Is Greater Than Love brand and is intended to show support for those who go beyond their remit to help others.
The Blue Star Families began in 2009, when a group of military spouses joined together to make a difference to the lives of military families. They realised the struggle and issues that the families dealt with on a daily basis and saw a need to create a platform for military families to join forces with the general public to help and address the challenges of military life. Blue Star Families now has 150,000 members and over 35 communities and chapters around the world. Their programs and services reach more than 1.5 million military families every year.
At the event, Joy Roulette won the 2016 Blue Star Neighbour Award, for setting up a network of people to deliver weekly meals and supportive notes for her and her children while her husband, Air Force Master Sargent MSGT Chris Cekovsky, was deployed. This story resonates with the message Sister Sledge embody in the soon to be released track, ‘WAMOW’ (Women Are Music Of the World), whereby women are encouraged to embrace their intelligence, beauty and show their love for others.
Speaking about the event, Sister Sledge said: "It was an absolute honour to be a part of such a rewarding experience. It's given us a new found respect for the men and women of the military, who risk their lives so that we may freely live ours.
All of these people are working together to support one another to make a global difference and this is exactly the message we would like to be a part of and demonstrate through our brand Nothing Is Greater Than Love and with our music."
WAMOW releases on 29th May 2016.
