About the Jackson 5

The iconic first family of pop music created their band in 1965. They hailed from Gary, Indiana. Led by their father, Joe, the five Jackson brothers recorded their first album in 1967. It would be just a few short years until the brothers were discovered by Motown, and the rest is music history.

Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael were the first Motown group to have four consecutive number-one songs. (See Motown wedding dance songs)

Michael soon emerged as the breakthrough star, and he would go on to have the best solo career of all the brothers. Two sisters also made a name for themselves as musical artists.

The music of the Jackson 5 has become a part of the American musical landscape, crossing genres and enduring to the present day. Although Michael passed away in 2009 and Randy no longer performs, the remaining brothers continue the Jackson 5’s musical legacy.
