Just less than a month ago, Bonnie Pointer of the legendary 70s group, The Pointer Sisters, tragically passed away.

Now her cause of death has been revealed.

Keep scrolling to find out how she tragically died.

They were perhaps most well-known for their original hit song, “I’m So Excited.”

She sang alongside her sister, June, and, eventually, the pair became a quartet when their sisters, Ania and Ruth, joined them.



The Pointer Sisters were a mixture of R&B, funk, rock and roll, gospel, country and soul.

And her disco cover of The Elgins’ “Heaven Must Have Sent You” became a top 20 pop hit in September 1979.

Which was the biggest hit for the singer.

And they had a major breakthrough with their 1983 album, Break Out.

Bonnie earned a Grammy for Best Vocal by a Duo or Group in the country category for their hit, Fairytale.

“It is with great sadness that I have to announce to the fans of The Pointer Sisters that my sister, Bonnie died this morning,” she said.


Our family is devastated, on behalf of my siblings and I and the entire Pointer family, we ask for your prayers at this time.

We’ve lost so many much-loved celebs this year, but it’s important to remember the joy that they’ve brought us all with their movies, music, and sport.

Born as Patricia Eva Pointer on July 11, 1950, Bonnie was an entertainer in the industry for over 50 years.

Bonnie and youngest sister, June, began singing together in their father’s West Oakland Church of God in Oakland, California.

Back in 1978, Bonnie married Motown producer Jeffrey Bowen.

Having been separated for ten years, only in 2014 did Bonnie officially file for divorce.

On two separate occasions, Bonnie played with The Pointer Sisters again. Once during a Las Vegas performance.

And once when they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

After struggling with certain underlying health issues for over a decade, such as liver disease, Bonnie passed away.

Bonnie’s official cause of death is listed as cardiopulmonary arrest, reports TMZ.

Our thoughts go out to all of Bonnie’s friends and family at this hard time.

One of the true legends of Motown.
