About Event
Originally discovered in a local talent show in 1971, Gennine was the youngest of the siblings that became the pop group “The Jackson Sisters”. Her professional singing career has evolved over the years and she is now recognized as one of the most talented vocalists of our time performing R&B, Pop, Soul, Jazz, Standards, and more!

I am a California native, born and raised in Compton. My musical history stems back to the age of eight when my sisters and I had a pop singing group (The Jacksonics). What started out as a dare – from the local boys who initially had a song/dance group every summer- ended up with us being noticed at one of several Talent Shows we entered that summer. After being “discovered” we were given the opportunity of a lifetime by entering the world of entertainment. We then went from “The Jacksonics,” to “The Jackson Sisters”

We performed at places as small as nightclubs rapidly climbing the ladder to venues such as Mavericks Flat and then further still to The Fabulous Forum, the Hollywood Paladium, the Ahmanson Theatre and more. We appeared on television on Soul Train, 90 Tonight (A special with Bob Bailey), A Couple of Dons (Don Rickles & Don Adams), telethons, and more.

We were blessed to perform and tour with some of the greatest: Billy Paul, Bill Cosby, Eddie Kendricks, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Three Dog Night, The Pointer Sisters, The Whispers, The Manhattans, Sisters Sledge, The Silvers, and many more. During our short career, we released an album and several single recordings including “Why Can’t We Be Just More Than Friends”, “Boy, You’re Dynamite”, and “I Believe In Miracles” which landed on the Billboard charts and is still being heavily played in clubs in both Europe and Asia. Since as far back as 1990, several CD’s & records/albums of “I Believe In Miracles” have been re-released and are being sold via the Internet.
