Jermaine Jackson

Singer and member of The Jackson 5 from the United States

Jermaine La Jaune Jackson is an American singer, songwriter, bass guitarist and member of the Jackson family. He was a member of The Jackson 5, a singing group composed of him and four of his brothers, from 1962 to 1975, where he was the second lead vocalist and played bass guitar. He sang the lead on some of their songs and had featured vocals on many others, including many of their biggest hits like "I'll Be There" and "I Want You Back". When the group left the Motown label and reformed as "The Jacksons", Jermaine stayed with Motown, due to loyalty to Motown founder Berry Gordy, whose daughter he had married, and was replaced in the group by youngest brother Randy. He rejoined the group in 1983, and has remained with them since, through various breakups and reunions.
