Tito Jackson

Toriano Adaryll "Tito" Jackson is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. Jackson was an original member of The Jackson 5 and The Jacksons, who rose to fame in the late 1960s and 1970s with the Motown label, recorded as a solo artist on the Epic label in the late 1970s and 1980s. Tito is the third child in the Jackson family. Toriano Adaryll Jackson was born the third of ten children in a black working-class family who lived in a three-room house in Gary, Indiana, his father, was a steel mill worker. His mother, was a devout Jehovah's Witness. At ten years of age, he was caught playing his father's guitar. After fixing the string, Joe demanded. Once he was finished, Jackson's father bought him his own guitar. Shortly thereafter, Joseph convinced Tito and Jermaine to form a singing group, having been impressed with the vocals of Jackie and Jermaine. After first performing in school functions and supermarkets, the brothers began participating in local talent shows when Jackson was twelve. By his younger brother Michael seven, had become the official lead singer of the group.

In 1965, they changed their name from the Jackson Brothers to the Jackson Five, won several talent shows around the Gary area. After winning the Amateur Night competition for The Apollo Theater in August 1967, Joe Jackson began to work part-time at the steel mill to help his sons secure a recording contract; the group signed with Steeltown Records in Indiana, in November of that year. In January 1968, the Jackson Five's first single, "Big Boy," was released on the Steeltown label. In 1969, the Jackson 5 signed with Motown Records in Detroit, scored several hit songs, including the number-one singles "I Want You Back," "ABC," "The Love You Save," and "I'll Be There." Although Tito sometimes added brief lead vocals on some songs, he and Marlon sang background harmony with the other brothers until much in their careers. Despite his talent as a guitar player, Motown refused to allow Tito to perform guitar on any of the Jackson 5 recording sessions, instead forcing all their guitar parts to be performed by session musicians.

As a direct result, Tito's guitar work did not make its debut until he and the Jacksons left Motown for CBS Records in 1976. He began writing songs with his brothers during this time. Throughout his tenure as a Jackson 5 and Jacksons member, Tito can be heard on many album recordings, such as "Zippee Doo Da" and "Man Of War." Tito, along with Jackie, were the most present members of the Jacksons, with Jermaine, Marlon and Randy leaving at different times. After the end of the Victory Tour, Tito performed session work and as a record producer. After releasing 2300 Jackson Street, the Jacksons ceased recording work. After years managing his family group featuring his sons, 3T, Jackson returned to the national spotlight after reuniting with his brothers on Michael's 30th anniversary concert special at Madison Square Garden. Jackson began a solo career in 2003 performing as a blues musician in various clubs with his band, which included producer and guitarist Angelo Earl, a management team that included Ed Tate.

In 2007, in the United Kingdom, Jackson appeared as a judge on the BBC celebrity singing competition Just the Two of Us for series two of the show. He replaced singer Lulu, a judge on series one, his co-judges were musician Stewart Copeland and radio DJ Trevor Nelson. During the tenure of his brothers' reality series, The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, produced and transmitted after his brother Michael had died, he served as one of the executive producers alongside his other brothers. In 2016, Tito Jackson joined his brothers and sisters and scored his first solo hit on the Billboard charts with the single, "Get It Baby," featuring Big Daddy Kane from his album Tito Time becoming the ninth and final Jackson family sibling to place a solo single on the charts; the album was released in Japan late in 2016, in the U. S on iTunes in April 2017. Since its launch, three singles have been released to radio in the US; the first single, When the Magic Happens, featuring Jocelyn Brown, was released on April 1, 2017.
