Early life

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, Joseph, was a steel mill worker, while his mother, Katherine, was a devout Jehovah's Witness. At ten years of age, he was caught playing his father's guitar after he broke a string.[2] After fixing the string, Joe demanded that his son play for him. Once he was finished, Jackson's father bought him his own guitar. Shortly thereafter, Joseph convinced Tito, Jackie and Jermaine to form a singing group, having been impressed with the vocals of Jackie and Jermaine. Tito can be heard singing background vocals on many early Jackson 5 recordings and having lead roles on later recordings such as "Man Of War" and "2300 Jackson Street."[citation needed]


After first performing in school functions and supermarkets, the brothers began participating in local talent shows when Jackson was twelve. By then, his younger brother Michael, then seven, had become the official lead singer of the group. In 1965, they changed their name from the Jackson Brothers to the Jackson Five, and 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, switching from full-time, at the steel mill to help his sons secure a recording contract. The group signed with Steeltown Records in Gary, Indiana, in November of that year. In January 1968, the Jackson Five's first single, "Big Boy," was released on the Steeltown label.[3]

In 1969, the Jackson 5 signed with Motown Records in Detroit, and scored several hit songs, including the number-one singles "I Want You Back," "ABC," "The Love You Save," and "I'll Be There." Though Tito sometimes added brief lead vocals on some songs, he and Marlon rarely sang background harmony work with the other brothers until much later 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 till after he and the Jacksons left Motown for CBS Records in 1976. He also 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," among numerous others on which he sings harmony. Tito, along with Jackie, were the most consistent members of the Jacksons, with Jermaine, Marlon, Michael and Randy, leaving at different times. After the end of the Victory Tour, Tito performed session work and also as a record producer. After releasing 2300 Jackson Street, the Jacksons ceased recording work. After years managing his sons's family group, 3T, Jackson returned to the national spotlight after reuniting with his brothers on Michael's 30th anniversary concert special at Madison Square Garden.

Solo work and other projects

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, and 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, who was a judge on series one. His co-judges were vocal coach CeCe Sammy, musician Stewart Copeland and radio DJ Trevor Nelson. During the tenure of his brothers's reality series, 2009's The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty, which was produced, released, and transmitted after his brother Michael died, he served as one of the executive producers alongside his other brothers. In the middle of 2012, Jackson reunited with brothers Jackie, Marlon, and Jermaine by going on tour.[citation needed] For over 50 years, the Jacksons, the First Family of Pop Music, had been charting hits, and 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.[4] The album Tito Time was released in Japan late in 2016, and a global release was expected in 2017. Tito Time was released 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 iconic soul diva Jocelyn Brown was released on 1 April. Tito launched the album for the UK market in September 2017 after a star studded U.K. Launch party. Tito spent 2 weeks in the U.K. promoting the album's release including appearances on all major radio stations. In 2017 Tito Jackson joined forces with the B.B. King Blues Band. In January 2018 Tito Jackson was honored with an award by The Mississippi Music Project in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Personal life

Jackson married Delores "Dee Dee" Martes in June 1972 at the age of 18, and later divorced in 1993.[5][6][not in citation given] In 1994, Martes was found dead floating in a swimming pool. The death was originally ruled accidental; however, a Los Angeles businessman, Donald Bohana, was subsequently charged with murdering her and later found guilty of second-degree murder in 2000.[7] He was sentenced 15 years to life in prison. The couple had three sons, who compose the musical group 3T:

Jackson also has six grandchildren; four through TJ[8] and two from Taryll (Bryce and Adren).[9][10]
