The Jackson five Driven by their father, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael, will participate in several singing competitions. Their group is called Jackson's Brother. It wasin a shopping center of the city as “Jackson five" started. A woman who worked as a model suggested the name "Jackson Five" because she found that "Jackson Brothers" was a name that was old and outdated and it was with this name that the brothers began to perform out of town. One day Berry Gordy spotted them and offered them a contract and within a few years the five boys became the most famous teenagers in America.

His personal physician, Conrad Murray, found Michael Jackson in his room with a low pulse. He called for an ambulance and they took him to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center where he was declared dead. Subsequently, it was declared that his death was a homicide and Dr. Murray was accused of manslaughter. A series of trials were to determine the circumstances of his death.
I discovered Michael jacksonwhen I was only a child, I havealways been interested in his music and not his behavior that sometimes you could read about in the press. I love all his music , even the Jackson five. I sing these songs for fun, I imitate the choreography as I find it excellent. I can relate to the characters of hissongs. I have always believed in the message he was trying to get across to people, hisideology and I've always wanted peace in the world like Michael wanted. And I will finish with a quote from MJ that everyone should read and do: "Everyone should do what his heart tells him."
