Jackson Sisters

Profile:
Based in Detroit, but originally out of Compton in California, The Jackson Sisters recorded material with some modest success in the 1970's. However the group really came into their own nearly a decade later following the emergence of the 'rare groove' scene in the U.K.

Shortly after they won a talent show, the sisters started as support act for Smokey Robinson & The Miracles at what was then called “The Mark Taper Form”. This was a farewell concert for Smokey as he ventured into his solo career. The concert was entitled “The Last Miracle” and featured acts as: Al Green, The Whispers, The Honeycombs, The Three Degrees, Edwin Starr & Eddie Kendrick’s, to name a few.

Within that same year, things moved pretty quickly. In 1973, they signed a contract with a small recording company entitled Prophesy Records in Beverly Hills, California. That is when they recorded 'I Believe in Miracles,' written by Mark Capanni & Bobby Taylor. The musical tracks were the works of the late Gene Page. The vocals were produced by Pete Moore of the famous Smokey Robinson & The Miracles along with Bobby Taylor, who also had a group called Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers.

The group appeared on television shows and specials, award ceremonies, telethons, Soul Train in 1973 & 1975, 90 Tonight late night talk show 1974 with Bob Bailey, A Couple of Don's TV special starring Don Rickles & Don Adams 1973, and the Jerry Lewis Sickle Cell Telethon. They also worked live venues such as The Aftra Convention 1973, The Soul Train Tour in 1974, various charitable telethons, and shared the stage with artists and entertainers: Bill Cosby, Nancy Wilson, Dionne Warwick, Billy Paul, Earth Wind & Fire, The Manhattans, Kool and The Gang, and others.

In, 1973 the sisters were nominated for best new vocal group for the Black Image Awards and best new female artist by Record World Magazine in 1974-1975 which was announced on Soul Train an aired Feb. 22, 1975.
