Jackson 5 - ABC




The Jacksons were the youngest members of the well-established Motown artist pool. Discovered by Diana Ross at a benefit concert in 1969, many regarded the boy group as a signal of freedom from racism and life in the ghetto. The music of the bubblegum clan – a mixture of innocence and total professionalism, according to the magazine Rolling Stone – was particularly appealing to other kids of the same age, who couldn't get their hands quickly enough on masses of their idols' concert tickets and various merchandise such as hairspray aerosols, watches and T-shirts. There were dozens of Jackson Five juvenile products on the market, but it must be said that the amazing success of the Five was truly earned from an artistic standpoint. The subtle and lively use of their voices, the boys' innate understanding of rhythm and verve, and their good constitution which allowed them to appear very often on stage all played a part in making the Jacksons the idols of millions of young people.
