In recent years, the Pointers have performed with some of the greatest symphony orchestras in the world, including San Francisco, Atlanta's symphony orchestra and the renowned Boston Pops. While June Pointer passed away, Ruth's daughter; Issa Pointer had already joined the group in 2003 and has been filling in the void to wide success. Ruth, Anita and Issa were a smash hit at Night of the Proms, which spanned over 50 sold-out performances throughout Germany, Holland and Belgium, and has secured the group many more successful tours in Europe. In 2004, the group recorded a live CD/DVD, which captured the energetic Pointers performing the hits that fans of all ages continue to enjoy! Ruth, Anita and Issa maintain a busy touring schedule and perform the music of The Pointer Sisters all over the world.
