Gary, Indiana brothers Tito, Jermaine, Randy, Michael, and Marlon Jackson were the Jackson 5 (later known simply as the Jacksons). One of the most influential and successful vocal groups of all time, they became worldwide superstars before they hit their teens. The Jackson 5's music was a highly accessible mix of R&B and straight pop with enormous crossover appeal. The group's focus was on the prodigious talents of its lead singer, Michael, who even at nine years old sang with the authentic soul feel of a grown man. Michael's subsequent solo career made him one of the biggest-selling artists in history, but the work of the Jackson 5 remains a vital part of pop and R&B history.
