Sister Sledge are considering turning their greatest hits into a musical.
The '70s disco icons have enjoyed enduring success thanks to dance floor classics like We Are Family and He's the Greatest Dancer. The group, made up of sisters Joni, Debbie and Kim Sledge, have teased they could soon follow in the footsteps of bands like ABBA and Queen by having their music featured in a stage musical.
“We recently got approached by someone in Chicago about doing a girl’s group musical, and I think that is fantastic,” Joni gushed to Britain’s Evening Standard newspaper.
Debbie adds that they’d love to see their music performed in London’s West End too.
The British capital currently has a slew of stage hits that feature chart music, including ABBA's Mamma Mia!, Carole King-inspired musical Beautiful and Michael Jackson’s Thriller. There’s also Motown: The Musical, featuring beloved Motown tracks.
"London is such a special place, it’s like our second home," Kim smiled. "I come here and I want clotted cream and a scone and fish and chips. The people are so warm. We have so many friends here, it’s like family."
Youngest sister Kathy was also originally part of the group but no long performs with her siblings.
