We're So Excited: An Evening with Ruth Pointer

Join Roads to Recovery for a special evening with Award-Winning Entertainer & Recovery Advocate Ruth Pointer.

Speaking candidly about sobriety, sisterhood, spirituality — and surviving showbiz through the ’70s — Ruth travels behind the scenes of her life in the fast lane. She shares with audiences the strength and wisdom amassed through the high-water marks and hard knocks of being a Pointer Sister in her talk, Through the Fire: My Journey from Addiction to Recovery.

Decades into a stellar career, she still spends months on the road living out of a single suitcase, singing “I’m So Excited.” The secret to her success is a sense of purpose that comes from singing one’s life unapologetically over time — with a slow hand, an easy touch, and no small amount of Fire.

We hope you will join us!
