On July 26, 1968 The Jackson Five signed a one-year contract with Motown Records. Due in large part to Motown Records CEO, Berry Gordy, the Jackson Five became the first all black group to be appeal equally to a white audience.
The Jackson Five, continued with much success into the 80’s and never officially broke up, although they were dormant for quite some time. In 2001, all six brothers performed together on one of Michael Jackson’s tours. After Michael’s death in 2009, the group announced a reunion tour, without brother Randy.
