Full name: Jermaine La Juane Jackson
Date of birth: 11 December 1954
Children: Jermaine Jr, Autumn, Jeremy, Jaimy, Jourdynn, Donté (adopted), Jaafar and Jermajesty

Jermaine Jackson debuted in 1967 as a member of the music group The Jackson 5 as a (co-lead) singer and bass player of the band. 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 pads of the solo careers of both Jermaine and Michael.

The Jackson 5 were later known as The Jacksons when brothers Jackie, Tito, Marlon, Michael and Randy signed to CBS Records, while Jermaine stayed loyal to Motown and continued his solo career. Jermaine and the brothers reunited in 1984 at a peek of Jermaine’s success as an established solo artist, and released their biggest-selling album to date, Victory, followed by the Victory Tour, performing 55 concerts to an audience of 2 million and the tour sold what was then a record number of ticket sales.

Adored by millions of fans the world over, The Jacksons 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.

The brothers were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and 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. 

Possessing one of the most elegant voices in the popular music industry and being a dynamic talented bass guitarist, Jermaine Jackson made his imprint in the musical landscape and raised the bar for future generations.

Jermaine made numerous humanitarian efforts to contribute to charity organizations and awareness programs to raise money, to give back and to make the world a better place.

Jermaine is on a mission to make the world remember his brother for the great human being that he was. Jermaine publicly defended his brother Michael when he went through rough times and he wrote his memoirs in the book You Are Not Alone, Michael: Through A Brother’s Eyes, published in 2011. The book is an intimate, loving portrait of his brother Michael, illuminating the private man like never before. In 2013, the book was fully revised and updated. Jermaine Jackson's memoirs is an Amazon and New York Times best seller!

Always being a keeper of the flame, Jermaine Jackson formed companies and partnerships to create new brands as he moves beyond the music in the worlds of entertainment, hospitality, jewelry, watches and food and beverages and more to make his dreams come true and turn his creative concepts into reality. Jermaine Jackson also holds two Guinness World Records.

The next generation of Jacksons may not all choose a career in the spotlight, however some of Jermaine’s children, including his youngest sons Jaafar and Jermajesty will continue the legacy that their father, uncles and aunts started and make an impact in the entertainment and music industry....
