Character: Sister

Sparkle's sister, whose name is Sister, was portrayed in the 1976 version by Lonette McKee (left). In the latest incarnation, she is portrayed by Carmen Ejogo (right). She is the lead singer in the group Sister and the Sisters (which also consists of Sparkle and Delores) and must contend with the pressures of being a lead singer.
