Happy Birthday Jackie Jackson (May 4)!

Happy Birthday Jackie Jackson, the oldest brother of the legendary Jackson family. He was born on May 4, 1951.

For the period, 1970-74, there was no Soul group - in fact no musical act in the world - that was bigger than the Jackson 5. The five brothers, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael Jackson were household names among people of every age and race, and set the stage for dozens of child and teenage groups that would later emerge (though none would ever match the intense popularity the Jackson 5 enjoyed).
