The Jackson Five: Royal Family of Pop
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC/WPGC) – The Jackson Five are perhaps one of the most iconic groups in the music business.
The band members, all siblings, grew up in Gary, Ind. and were managed by their father, Joseph Jackson.
With hits like “I Want You Back” and “ABC” they became a staple in the music scene for over two decades.
In the early 1990’s, Michael Jackson began his solo career and the rest, is history, with other siblings following in his footsteps.
The family is now considered the “Royal Family” of pop with eight of the nine siblings having gold records.
