Katherine Jackson: Career
As a child, Katherine had a dream to become a singer, and she fulfilled her dream through her children. Michael Jackson was surely the greatest entertainer to date, and he had achieved it all on his own, but it was his mother, Katherine, who inculcated the music in him and supported him throughout his career.
Katherine got music flair since her childhood. Once she was hit by polio, her dream was devastated too. But she kept on singing in small stages. And after her marriage to Josef, who had also got a good knack for singing, the couple started singing together. But that was enough to support their family, so Katherine put her singing aside and started working as a store clerk. Soon, she quit the job and started focusing completely on her family and kids.
This is when music again revived in her, and she instilled it in all of her kids. First, she and her husband formed ‘The Jackson Brothers’ group, which was later renamed ‘Jackson Five’ after the entry of Michael Jackson. Katherine had trained her children so well that soon this group had taken the world by storm. In 1990, she also wrote her autobiography titled ‘My Family, The Jacksons.’
