Ruth Pointer is still so excited.
At least, that's how you feel after listening to the lead singer of the pop act the Pointer Sisters talk about this stage in her life and the reflections on her long career — which includes pop hits like the affirming "I'm So Excited," the slow-burning "Fire" and the classic ballad "Slow Hand."
Pointer discussed her art and her life's arc through fame and addiction in an appearance at ASU Thursday night as part of the Project Humanities series. Before she took the stage, Pointer granted some time with ASU Now to talk about how essential the humanities are in our culture and the role art has played on her life.
