BMI To Honor The Jacksons
August 4, 2008 at 1:54 PM (PT)
Most, but not yet all, of the brothers JACKSON will stage a reunion of sorts when they are honored as BMI ICONS at its annual URBAN AWARDS next month. All of the brothers -- except MICHAEL -- have confirmed their attendance at the event, which will be held SEPT. 4th at the WILSHIRE THEATRE in BEVERLY HILLS.
An all-star tribute is planned for the group, which was initially comprised of MICHAEL, MARLON, JACKIE, TITO and JERMAINE. Brother RANDY replaced JERMAINE and the group became THE JACKSONS after leaving MOTOWN in 1976. Both versions of the group will be honored.
The BMI URBAN AWARDS honor R&B and hip-hop's top hitmakers.
