Jermaine Says Jackson Five Will Reunite

Jackson Five to release album, tour with Michael

January 8, 2001 12:00 AM ET

It seems that Michael Jackson is doing more than recording his "comeback album." In an impromptu interview he granted to start-up Sirius Satellite Radio Station during the Consumers Electronic show in Las Vegas, Michael's older brother Jermaine revealed that the Jackson Five have reformed.

"We're in the studio working very hard on a new J-5 album that will be released this summer," he said, adding almost as an after thought that the brothers would also be hitting the road after the album is released. "We're going to do a new tour. We're very, very excited."

Jackson offered no details about the reunion -- which would be the brothers' first outing since the Jacksons' 1984 Victory Tour -- but didn't hesitate when asked if the new CD and tour would include Michael. "Absolutely," he enthused.

Michael is currently in the studio with producers Rodney Jerkins and David Foster recording his next album, which is due out in March. Calls to his representatives were not returned by press time.

“I Was Made to Love Her”

Stevie Wonder | 1967

Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
