    The Emotions: Wanda Hutchinson Vaughn, Performs with her daughters
    The Jones Girls: Shirley Jones perform with background singers as the Jones girls. Why can't these sisters get along with each other.

    Kim Sledge still performs with Debbie. As regards The Jones Girls i think Shirley is the only sister still alive i do believe?

    Totally agree. I thought Joni's passing had reunited them, but sadly that "truce' appears to have not lasted.

    The Clark Sisters are currently in the studio working on new music and gearing up for their biopic on Lifetime in April. Even though they started off as 5, four of the original members still sing together.

    The Jones Girls: Shirley Jones perform with background singers as the Jones girls. Why can't these sisters get along with each other.
    Pointer Sisters: Anita retired (and has fought off illnesses for a while), June is dead, Bonnie occasionally performs with them (there was drama when June was dying though and Bonnie had left them in 1977).
    The Emotions: Sheila retired from performing. Jeanette probably still has issues with them. Don't know why Pam doesn't perform with them, probably the same thing with Sheila, she just decided to retired.
    The Jones Girls: The other sisters are dead.

    It's not always from familial issues. As someone else mentioned, the Clark Sisters haven't performed with the fifth sister, Denise, since 1985, but the other four (Jacky, Twinkie, Dorinda and Karen) remain a tight unit to this day.

    Yeah, Brenda and Valorie are dead. Valorie died in 2001 and Brenda died in 2017. The sisters got along real well and were all performing together until Valorie died. Then it was Brenda, Shirley (and probably one of Shirley's kids) until Brenda died. Now it's Shirley and her daughters carrying on the JG's legacy.
