Jackie Jackson was born on May 4th, 1951 in Gary, Indiana – the eldest of the Jackson brothers. He started dance and tap lessons at age of four, and his signature high voice led him to become co-lead singer of The Jackson Five and The Jacksons.
In 1973, at the age of 22, Jackie released his first solo album, self-titled “Jackie Jackson”. In the early eighties, Jackie co-wrote songs for his sisters Rebbie and LaToya, and produced various motion picture soundtracks such as “Touch and Go” (1986), “The Running Man” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (1987) and most notably, the theme for “Burglar” (1987) starring Whoopi Goldberg. In 1989, Jackie released his second solo record with Polygram, titled “Be The One”, which included two releases that would top the charts for over four months. In November 2010, Jackie returned to the music scene with the release of his single, ‘We Know What’s Going On’. Jackie also released a collaborative version of “We Know What’s Going On” with the South African artist Jacques Terre’Blanch.
