Married to Dennis Edwards of The Temptations; mother of Issa Pointer. Ruth is still an active member of the Pointer Sisters and continues to tour extensively with Anita and Issa. Ruth also manages, however, to find time to pursue helping charitable organizations such as the Special Olympics and Best Buddies, both of which are dear to her heart. Ruth has even volunteered her talent and time to the USO and is one of their International Spokespersons, performing for troops all over the world.
...And although Ruth has recorded a few solo performances for soundtracks, unlike sisters Anita and June, she has no plans to record a solo album of her own. When asked by a journalist why, Ruth was reported to have said she'd rather sing with her sisters than sing alone - she has more fun with them than she does flying solo.
