Just like her dad, Rubi seems to have picked up an interest in music.
The last picture saw the two sisters, Alva and Rubi, striking a pose with Al. With the siblings flashing adorable smiles, they sweetly held their father.
Rubi shared the photos alongside a touching caption where she described Alva as the best big sister in the world.
She went on to express love for Alva while urging fans to also send their best wishes across to the birthday girl. Shortly after sharing the post, fans and followers took to the comments section where they left lovely birthday messages for Alva.
Some others also expressed love for the touching post by simply clicking the like button. So far, it has garnered over two hundred likes.
Green welcomed Alva and Rubi during his marriage to his ex-wife, Shirley Kyles. In addition to the two sisters, the couple also shares a younger daughter, Kora.
Kyles and Green tied the knot in June 1977. At the time, he was already a pastor at the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church and was also famous as a soul singer.
Despite their turbulent union which was rocked by domestic violence, the couple was together for five years before splitting up.
Born on April 13, 1946, Green is most famous for his hit song, "Let's Stay Together," which was released in the 70s. Over the past few years, he has continued to make music.
Last year, he embarked on his first tour in seven years, and fans couldn't have been more thrilled to see him perform.
Just like her dad, Rubi seems to have picked up an interest in music. In 2012, she released a music video for her second single, "More," and from all indications, she definitely inherited the singing genes from Green!
