the jacksons 5

Considered "one of the biggest phenomenons in pop music during the early 1970s. The Jackson 5's combination of extraordinary musical talent and choreography has earned the family the status of pop royalty in the music world and was later responsible for providing the launching pad for the solo careers of Michael Jackson and Jermaine Jackson. 

biggest phenomenons in pop music during the early 1970s

With the songs "I Want You Back", "ABC", "The Love You Save" and "I'll Be There", the Jackson 5 made history in 1970 as the first recording act whose first four singles reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. All four singles were almost as popular in other countries as it was in the United States. “I’ll Be There” remains the best selling single in Motown history. Releasing a succession of four albums in one year, the Jackson 5 had replaced The Supremes as Motown's best-selling group. They continued their success with singles such as "Mama's Pearl", "Never Can Say Goodbye" and "Sugar Daddy", giving them a total of seven top ten singles within a two-year period.

Adored by millions of fans the world over, the Jackson brothers forever changed the landscape of popular music. The Jacksons’ unique brand of soulful pop-funk, their lengthy catalogue of hits, and their impeccable live performances have made them one of the most beloved musical acts of all time. Idols unlike any other in music history, the Jacksons redefined, reinvented, and reinvigorated popular music as we know it. 

Classic #1 hits such as “ABC,” “I Found That Girl,” “I Want You Back,” and “I’ll Be There,” catapulted the group to superstardom. With nine #1 hits and 14 Top 10 hits, the group has certainly left it mark on the charts. These timeless tracks remain every bit as infectious, incomparable, and iconic today as when they were first released. The Jacksons signature sun-drenched harmonies, energetic stage presence, and roster of smash hits have left an indelible mark on popular music: the name ‘The Jacksons’ is known around the world, and they remain the biggest-selling family in music of all time.

Not only did the Jackson 5 become the first group ever to have their first four singles hit #1 on the Billboard Charts, which brought them international notoriety. The Jackson 5 were formally inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and were the youngest group ever to receive that honor. The brothers were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999 as The Jackson 5. Listed among The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's "500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll" are two of the group’s songs ("ABC" and "I Want You Back") with “I Want You Back” also included in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
