Michael Jackson was well known to many people. He was known as “The King of Pop.” He started out with a family band. ( The Jackson 5 ) His brothers were in the band. His brothers in the band were Jermaine, Marlon, Jackie, and Tito. They were a band until Michael went solo in 1972. Michael's brothers, Jermaine and Jackie also released solo albums that year. Thankfully the brothers still performed together. In June 1972, the Jackson 5 released their last album."Looking through the Windows." Meanwhile Michael's third album, music in me was released. Michael was growing up as he soon saw. He noticed that his voice was changing too. The worst part is that he was getting a case of acne. He was worried that people would notice. He was no longer adorable any more...
