I thought it would be nice to include The Jacksons as part of my first selection. They started out as The Jackson 5 but changed their name after leaving Motown Records.
The original group consisted of Jackie, Marlon, Tito, Jermaine and Michael Jackson. Jermaine would be the first to pursue a solo career and then Michael.
They were one of the first boy groups to present us with spectacular performances and incredible vocals. Michael Jackson would steal the show from his brothers with what seemed to come naturally to him. We would find out years later the abuse they endured from their father to make them into the stars they became.
Here are The Jacksons with “Rockin’ Robin.”
