The 5 Fantastic ...
Who does not know today this legendary group resulting from a family made up of 9 children, 6 boys and 3 girls, whose children received with varying degrees of musical aptitudes for the exceptional one, for the others of very great quality. Founded in 1963, the group was originally called "Jacksons Five" but it was the break with the Motown record label in 1976 that forced them to rename themselves the Jacksons. The group is led with an iron fist by Joseph "Joe" Jacksons, violent and authoritarian father of the family, who will make them chain Contests and performances until 1970, exceptional year which sees their 1st single released, namely " I want you back ". And it’s a phenomenal success. One of the children immediately broke away from the group, both in his amazing voice and in his extraordinary gestures. A certain Michael… The tubes will be linked, years after years to end in apotheosis in the early 80s. We will remember the now legendary "Blame it on the boggie" released in 1978 and "Can you feel it" in 1981 which remain their most successful dance titles to this day. It was from 1981 that Mickael began his solo career, thereby sounding the death knell for this adventure that would have propelled the whole family to the firmament and that would have brought him forever to the World Musical Pantheon.
