‘Tickets @ 2′ is a monster hit by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Sister Sledge[/lastfm], “We Are Family.”

Sister Sledge is four sisters whose last name is really Sledge. They were a backup group for various artists before releasing “We Are Family.” Luther Vandross, a struggling singer at the record label at the time, sang backup. Of course he became a star years later.

The ‘sisters’ recorded the song in one take. Kathy Sledge, who sang lead, did not know the lyrics ahead of time. The producer gave her each line through her headphones as they came up to make it sound spontaneous.

When you hear it play between two and three we’ll take caller  #14 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Warner Brothers new movie “Big Miracle” courtesy of Regal Entertainment Group.
