Throwback: Rebbie Jackson-Centipede



Rebbie Jackson is the eldest of the famous Jackson sibling clan. She started performing with her family in the ’70’s when they worked at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and on their television show “The Jacksons.” Centipede was her fist solo album to emerge in 1984. Her brother Michael wrote the highly successful title track and the rest of the album contained material from Prince and Smokey Robinson including the other single “A Fork In The Road.” Jackson released two more albums by the end of the ’80’s; Reaction and R U Tuff Enuff. She returned to recording in the ’90’s and released Faithfully Yours on her brother Michael’s MJJ label. In 2010 the singer announced that she was working on new material but didn’t give any more details. Her son Austin Brown is currently working on his music career and released his first single “All I Need” in July of 2011.
