Black Music Month Artist Of The Day 25: Jackson 5

With the recent passing of Michael Jackson, it just seemed fitting that he would be recognized a second day during Black Music Month. This entry focuses on him as a member of The Jackson 5 and The Jacksons.

Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael…they really were the first black teen idols the world had. Their harmonies were some of the best, mirroring all of the barber shop quartet acts of the early 50s and 60s. As they grew from boys into young men, their music changed but their style and stage performances only got better. Michael’s journey into super-stardom help change the way we see and here music around the world. That makes The Jackson 5 a perfect candidate for artist of the day. RIP Michael.

Here are The Jackson 5 singing an acapella version of one of the best songs ever written: “I’ll Be There”.

NBC is giving a first look at Jay in Prime-Time. The new show called “The Jay Leno Show” will return the variety/talk show format to prime-time five nights a week at 10 pm. Shows like this started out in prime-time, but in recent years, dramas have claimed hold of the 10 o’clock hour.

“The thing is there’s plenty of drama on television”, Leno said in a recent interview with Monsters and Critics. “I hear people saying ‘oh Jay Leno is taking work away from dramatic writers.’ But you know something? When you look at FX and USA cable and all the others, ‘The Closer’ and all these other shows, there’s more drama now than there’s ever been. And if people want to go there they can go there.”

The Jay Leno Show debuts in September on NBC.
