08/29/14 – The Jacksons are performing tomorrow night at the 2014 Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion. They are currently on tour and recording a new album.

TOM JOYNER: We are here onstage with the Jacksons. And I wish you were here, during the break we did Acapulco Jackson Five and Jackson songs and Jermaine Jackson songs and everybody sang along. It was incredible Jackie.
JACKIE: Incredible, amazing.
JACKIE: It’s great to sing with you, Tom.
TOM JOYNER: Yeah. Turn these mics up. You know, they talk soft. (Laughter). I don’t know they do it. Jermaine.
JERMAINE: Except for Tito.
SYBIL WILKES: (Laugh)
JERMAINE: Oh, I don’t …
ANTHONY BROWN: Yeah, Tito’s got that bass.
TOM JOYNER: Yeah. Hey, Jermaine, what’s going on, man?
JERMAINE: What’s going on with you?
TOM JOYNER: Yeah, good man. I’m so glad you’re here. I saw you guys when you opened in Vegas. I came backstage and I said; would you please, please, please bring your family and your act to the Tom Joyner Family Reunion. You said; yes, I’ll do it.
JERMAINE: Here we are.
JACKIE: Yes, sir.
TOM JOYNER: And your dad and your mom were backstage and it was a beautiful thing.
JERMAINE: Thank you.
TOM JOYNER: It was a beautiful show. And I said then, I said, if anyone gets a chance to see this show, you should. And we will have it at the family reunion. Now you’ve been touring, and everywhere you go I get messages that you turned it out and that they were coming here because they saw you in Kentucky and other places. The act is incredible. You know what I like most, Tito, and Jackie, is when you do the breakdown and you talk about how you were raised, the behind the scene stories.
TOM JOYNER: About Michael. And one thing that I noticed is that watching the four of you let me know where Michael really got it from. Being the younger brother, if you’re a younger sibling, you always want to be like your older sibling. And when you see these guys performing you look on that stage and you go; oh, that’s where Mike got it from.
JERMAINE: We were blessed but at the same time we had a mother and father who really wanted us to be our best, and my father and mother they really stayed behind us. And like Tito said, Jackie, myself and Tito, we were trying to be the Isley Brothers when we first started?
