Enid Arden Span’s ex-husband Jackson performed with a high tenor singing voice. He had the highest and lightest natural speaking and singing voice of all the brothers. He added brief lead parts in some of the Jackson 5’s hit singles, including “I Want You Back” and “ABC”. In 1973, he released a solo album that failed to chart. When the Jackson 5 became the Jacksons after leaving Motown for CBS Records in 1976, Jackson’s role as a vocalist and songwriter increased. He added a lead vocal alongside Michael on their Top 10 Epic single “Enjoy Yourself”, and also added composition on six of the group’s albums with Epic.

Jackson’s voice changed to a lower tenor vocal style during the Epic years. One of his most successful compositions, “Can You Feel It”, co-written with Michael, became an international hit in 1981. Jackson began performing more lead vocals as Michael pursued a solo career. On their 1984 album Victory, Jackie performed lead on the song “Wait” and wrote the single “Torture”.

Jackson recovered well enough to perform on the last leg of shows in December 1984 in Los Angeles, where Michael announced he was leaving the group. In early 1985, Marlon Jackson left the group as well.
