The surviving members of Sister Sledge have issued the following statement regarding the out-of-nowhere death of sister Joni at age 60 on Friday:

Sister Sledge will continue with their 2017 concert schedule.

Sister Sledge - Debbie, Kim and the Sledge family would like to express our deepest gratitude to all who have extended their love and support during this difficult and challenging time of mourning, in the wake of the passing of our beloved sister Joni Sledge. 

Joni was a beautiful person, phenomenal artist and producer, a brilliant business woman and a powerhouse! One of her greatest loves and joys was performing live with her family. In the spirit of Joni's powerful strength of character, zest for life and spreading joy through music, we are committed to continuing her legacy. Therefore, in this new 2017 concert season, and in the true Sister Sledge family tradition, we will embrace and celebrate Joni, dedicating every concert in honor of her remarkable and beautiful life. WE ARE SISTERS. We are one... We are Flo's daughters. 

We are Family! WE ARE WAMOWS!

The band's first appearance following Joni's death will be at SpringFest 2017 at Edinburgh's Corn Exchange on May 27:
