She joined her sisters Bonnie and June in 1969, officially forming The Pointer Sisters. During the group's career, many of their hits featured lead vocals by Anita. This list included their first hit single, a cover of Allen Toussaint's 'Yes We Can Can' in 1973. Anita co-wrote and sung lead on both 'Fairytale' (which earned her a Grammy for best country single by a duo or group in 1975) and 'How Long (Betcha Got A Chick On The Side)' which gave the group a #1 Billboard soul hit that same year. She also sang lead on the group's biggest American pop hits, 'Fire' and 'Slow Hand' and was the primary writer of their massive international signature hit, 'I'm So Excited.'
