Patriarch of World's Most Popular Music Family, Joseph Jackson, dies at age 89

Joseph Walter Jackson, born on 26 July 1929, has passed away on 27 June 2018 at age 89. We owe this man a lot of thanks and gratitude for creating the World's Most Popular Music Family and Pop Royalty. Sending love, light and condoleances to the entire Jackson Family and all Jacksons fans worldwide.  

Many years ago God planted a special seed in the earth. The seed was put there to be cultivated, nourished and cared for very carefully. It began to germinate into a strong root and then a beautiful tree. Its roots were very busy feeding from the earth so that the tree would continue to grow very strong and proud on a solid foundation. As years went by, the tree began to sprout many branches. The branches were very strong individually and collectively and were always accompanied by hummingbirds, larks and other types of singing birds. Even though the branches were pointing in many different directions, they knew that if they stayed together the tree could weather any storms that were ahead. The tree was so beautiful to look at and everyone who saw it wanted to take a branch or two for their own satisfaction, but the root system always believed, “United we stand, divided we fall but together we can conquer all.” Today this tree is now planted in the minds of human beings all over the world. No matter how far the branches may grow in life, it all started from a seed that was planted at 2300 Jackson Street in Gary, Indiana. The root of the tree is Katherine and Joseph Jackson who gave the tree life, direction and a strong foundation so that the whole world could appreciate its beauty and what it stands for.

Jermaine Jackson responds to media headlines about his father Joseph's welfare

Following the story of The Daily Mail (20 June 2018) and media headlines that Jermaine Jackson said that Jackson family patriarch Joseph is "dying", Jermaine released the following statement on Twitter:

On the new story re Joseph. I'd like to be clear: I've no problem speaking up when it comes to the welfare of this family, but a journalist called me with information he clearly already had about my father. I confirmed certain details but "revealed" nothing. (1/2)
2: My father's health is not good, but "dying" is a harsh word chosen by headline writers, not me. For however long he has left, my mother, siblings, and relatives want to be with him, without hindrance. (2/2)

Detroit honors The Jackson with ceremonial keys to city

Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon Jackson got a warm reception Friday June 15th in the hometown of Motown Records and were given the ceremonial keys to the city by Detroit police Chief James Craig. The celebration was initially supposed to have included the renaming of a street after their more famous brother, Michael, but the plan was abandoned after it emerged that the brothers had thought the street would be named after The Jackson 5. A Detroit ordinance prohibits streets from being ceremonially renamed after groups or organizations. The remaining members of The Jackson 5 performed Saturday at a free concert in the city.

The Jacksons to Headline Detroit Music Weekend, Receive Key to the City & Honorary Street Renaming

Fifty years after The Jackson 5 signed with Motown and came to Detroit for the first time -- famously performing for the label's roster around Berry Gordy's home swimming pool -- the city will honor the group with a street named after it. Well, one of its members, at least -- and possibly more. 

Michael Jackson Ave. was announced Thursday for a block in Detroit's downtown, with an unveiling to take place during the second annual Detroit Music Weekend June 14-17. The surviving Jackson 5 brothers -- Jackie, Tito, Jermaine and Marlon -- will headline the festival and receive a key to the city. But Jackie and Marlon, on hand for the Thursday announcement, were surprised that the street was being named just for their late younger brother and indicated there might be a change.

Marlon told Billboard that the street was "supposed to be" named for the entire group and added that "I think it is going to be that. There was a mistake." A Detroit city ordinance requires any honorary street naming to be for an individual only, but sources said that talks were underway to allow for an exception to that. Festival founder and producer Vince Paul explained, "I'd like to do the other four brothers individually. It seemed appropriate to start with Michael because of his premature passing, so that's the first one we'll start with. But if I had my druthers there'll be [streets named for] Tito, Jackie, Marlon. That's where I'm going with it." 

Aretha Franklin was the recipient of a street naming before last year's Detroit Music Weekend. Altering the ordinance will also allow the festival to name streets for other legendary Detroit acts, such as The Temptations, Four Tops and Supremes without controversy.

The two Jacksons were nonetheless happy to be returning to Detroit for the festival, especially during the anniversary year of their arrival at Motown. "We should have a music festival here," Jackie said. "This is the music city. This is where the music comes from. Everybody talks about the Motown sound all over the world, so we should have a music festival here." Marlon added, "We're looking forward to it. Music is universal. It all accomplishes the same thing -- unity, happiness, love, peace. That's what music is about and that's what Detroit is about, too."

In addition to the Jacksons' free public performance on June 16, a tribute concert to the group will take place the night before, with former Jacksons and Michael Jackson keyboardist Greg Phillinganes co-directing the band with Kern Brantley.

Detroit Music Weekend will also feature more than 500 performers on five stages during the Saturday program, including former Grand Funk Railroad frontman Mark Farner, Emmy-winning actor and recording artist Jeff Daniels and his son Ben Daniels' Band, and the Craig Brown Band. Full information is available at DetroitMusicWeekend.org.
