Tito Jackson:

Tito Jackson--Ambassador and Solo Artist!

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Tito Jackson’s poetic lyrics, irrepressible vocals, and evocative musicianship are a faint reflection of the remarkable gifts that characterize Gary, Indiana’s native son. Born Toriano Adaryll Jackson, Tito has spent his entire life enchanting music lovers with soulful harmonies interwoven with curvaceous rhythms as a member of Motown’s greatest discovery, The Jacksons (Jackson 5), and presently as a multi-faceted solo artist. Tito’s unyielding passion for blues, R&B, pop, and other music forms is the secret to his boundless energy and rare achievements in the ever-changing entertainment spectrum.

In 1962, before the Jackson 5 and the Jacksons, Tito performed in a local group called The Jackson Brothers. After competing and winning local talent shows in and around Gary, the precocious brothers were victorious again on the most prestigious amateur stage of all — Manhattan’s Apollo Theater. In that same year Tito and his brothers made their first studio recording (local label), titled “Big Boy.” Not only did it turn out to be a local hit, but it set the stage for a partnership with Motown Records (1969) and subsequent appearances on the top-rated Ed Sullivan Show, American Bandstand, Soul Train, and later, their own primetime television series in 1976, on CBS. In addition to this, Tito and his brothers’ soaring popularity with America’s youth was so captivating that they were captioned in a Saturday morning, ABC TV animation series.

Tito and his brothers signed with Epic Records and officially came under a new name, The Jackson’s, in 1976. In 1978 he co-wrote the songs “Everybody,” “Destiny,” and “Push Away” for his new record label. As the group The Jackson’s, including Tito, they self-produced the Destiny album. Later, for the Victory Album Tito produced, wrote, and sang on “We Can Change The World,” which was featured on their popular Victory Tour.

A father of three young men (Taj, Taryll, and TJ), known to the music world as 3T, Tito works closely with his sons. This is consistent with the fine direction that he received from his loving mother Katherine and his caring father Joe. In addition to working with sisters Janet, Rebbie, and La Toya, Tito has worked with countless fine musicians, singers, and producers, such as the preeminent production team of Gamble & Huff, LA Reid & Baby Face, and the versatile Howard Hewitt.

One of the performing highlights of the remarkable career of Tito Jackson is the unforgettable reunion performance on one of histories most watched television specials, Motown 25. The show signaled a pivotal point in his dazzling career and an auspicious focus on likely the greatest performer to ever grace a stage, Michael Jackson. In 1997 Tito and his brothers were ceremonially honored as inductees of the well-respected Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Tito’s initial success with the recording masterpieces “I Want You Back,” “Never Can Say Goodbye”, “I’ll Be There,” (best selling single in Motown’s history), and other mega-hits is the genesis of an indefatigable trek into modern musical immortality. Tito Jackson’s eclectic musical arrow is aimed in the direction of diverse genres, R& B, blues, and pop. And at this juncture, Tito plans a series of recording ventures that will include a solo debut album featuring a caravan of styles. Although some of his numerous influences include blues greats Albert Collins and B.B. King, in reality his musical tastes defy nomenclature. Some projects will include collaborations with his son’s group, 3T, while other CD’s may involve his creative siblings along with collaborations from an assemblage of noteworthy artists. However, make no mistake about it, most of his work will consist of impressive solo projects with songs that are arranged, produced, and performed by Tito himself. Presently he is in the process of completing his new project for a 2009 global release. By doing this, fans around the globe will experience the true essence of Tito Jackson as a premier solo artist and as one of music industries’ group icons. Tito and his band, sporting a frenetic pulse, will also rock the world again through a number of riveting live shows.

The measure of Tito Jackson’s influence can be best captured by expressions such as these: “One of the kindest, more pleasant people in show business,” said a major entertainment publicist. His brother Michael also had this to say about him, “Tito is very quiet and soft, but can be really strong when necessary. He’s always there when we need him and manages to project an inner calm which is vital within a family unit ”. Those statements have proven to be consistently true through the ups and downs of the exciting but rigorous show business lifestyle. As an international artist, the demure Tito has garnered great respect from his peers and fans alike. His emphasis on fairness and loyalty in the music business community is a hallmark of his aplomb and selfless style.

Tito’s love of music can be transcended only by his undying love of God, family, and friends. Tito’s mark on music history and the rich legacy that he established is one that has stood the test of time and is one that will flourish for as long as there is a song to sing!

We didn’t get to discuss this one, but our friend Wendy Raquel Robinson is in it: 35 And Ticking a film by radio legend Russ Parr. 

“35 & Ticking” centers around the lives of Victoria, Zenobia , Clevon, and Phil — all friends approaching the age of 35 and struggling to build the families they’ve always dreamed of. While Zenobia (Parker, “Soul Food,” “Brown Sugar”) is still looking for a man, Victoria (Jones, “Castle,” “One on One”) is married to a man who doesn’t want children. Clevon (comic Hart, “Not Easily Broken,” “40 Year-Old Virgin”), meanwhile, is too geeky to get a woman, and Phil (Keith Robinson, “Dreamgirls”) is already married with children, but his wife is not very interested in being a mother. All four of them try to rectify their romantic lives and futures while their biological clocks tick away.

For this Easter, we share with you these spring images photographed by Leroy Hamilton

This is Spring Break for Sunday Morning Live, so we will forgo a show today.  My Grandmother didn’t like working on Sundays as it is, but working on Easter?  Not gonna happen!

Enjoy your family time, but before you go, let me introduce a new segment on parenting on Sunday Morning Live called “It Starts at Home”.

I first announced it on Cinchcast here:  http://www.cinchcast.com/isidra/it-begins-at-home/212967

The first episode is here: http://www.cinchcast.com/isidra/213065

As I told the women of Black Women for Wellness, where I first announced this segment as a panelist some weeks ago: with the advent of smart phones, we all have studios in our pockets.  Start recording your ideas of the best parenting tips that helped you through…or start recording parenting you see at random — good or bad.  (Be discreet and blur faces when you can.  Upload them and send us your You Tube link!) We can post video on this blog and play the audio on the show giving you full credit, if approved.

This first segment (at the second link above) features my former producer at KACE Sherese Holmes who is now an educator in La Vegas.  She is also the owner of hugs and kisses.  Please take the first part of what she says in fun, but her message about reading is serious.  Click the link above to listen!

Second, after 24 straight shows, we are starting to get show ideas.  We love them, but invite you to get involved.  Record your own rant on a topic or record a debate you are having with someone on a particular issue. We would love to air it!  Keep it to 5 minutes and if it merits a segment we will invite you on.

Enjoy your Resurrection Sunday, everybody!
