They later became “The Jackson 5”. Little Michael always watched his brothers practice singing. When he was about 5 years old, he joined the group and became the lead singer of The Jackson 5.

Michael said, “When I finished that song, everybody gave me a big hand and people were smiling, and some of them were standing. My teachers were crying and I just couldn’t believe it. I had made them all happy. It was such a great feeling. I felt a little confused too, because I didn’t think I had done anything special. I was just singing the way I sang at home every night. When you’re performing, you don’t realize what you sound like or how you’re coming across. You just open your mouth and sing.”

Soon his father made the band take part in talent contests. He was so strict with young Michael and his brothers. Michael said, “If you didn’t do well, you got hit, sometimes with a belt, sometimes with a stick. My father was really strict with us --- really strict.”
