August 19, 2008: "The Jacksons' Reunion Deemed Unlikely, Michael Jackson Hasn't Spoken To His Brothers For Three Years"

Michael Jackson hasn't spoken to his brothers for three years after a row about money.

The Jacksons were set to appear on stage together next month to receive an Icon Award at the BMI Urban Awards but this now looks unlikely as it has been revealed that "Thriller" singer Michael hasn't had any contact with his siblings since he was acquitted of child molestation charges three years ago.

It has also been claimed Michael still owes them around $840,000 in royalties, according to the New York Post newspaper.

The Icon Award is given to artists and songwriters whose music contributions have had "a unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers."

Earlier this month, a BMI spokeswoman said all the Jackson brothers except Michael had confirmed they will attend the ceremony at Beverly Hills' Wilshire Theatre.

Last year, Jermaine revealed the brothers had been discussing a reunion, saying: "It could be sometime in 2008. Michael will be involved. We feel we have to do it one more time. We owe that to the fans and to the public."

"Michael has to be involved. He is a Jackson."

Mahalia Jackson biography (bio):
Mahalia Jackson was an American gospel singer, widely regarded as the best in the history of the genre.
In 1927, Jackson moved from the South to Chicago, Illinois, in the midst of the Great Migration. There she would sing with The Johnson Brothers, one of the earliest professional gospel groups. She later married Isaac Hockenhull, who was 10 years her senior. Mahalia refused to sing secular music, a pledge she would keep throughout her professional life despite enormous financial inducements to do otherwise; she eventually divorced Isaac because of his unrelenting pressure on her to do so. The Johnson Brothers broke up in the mid-1930s, and Mahalia began her solo career in 1937. Though her recording of "God's Gonna Separate the Wheat from the Tares", was only a moderate success, she became a popular concert draw. She experienced a recording hiatus until 1946, and in 1948 recorded "Move on Up a Little Higher", a recording so popular that stores could not stock enough copies of it to meet demand. The success of this record rocketed Mahalia to fame in the U.S. and soon after in Europe. Other recordings received wide praise, including: "I Can Put My Trust in Jesus", which won a prize from the French Academy, and "Silent Night" which became one of the best-selling singles in the history of Norway.

1950s 1970s
Mahalia's career in the late 1950s and early 1960s continued to rise. She began a radio series on CBS and signed to Columbia Records in 1954. However, with her mainstream success came an inevitable backlash from gospel purists who felt she had watered down her sound for popular accessibility. Jackson had many notable accomplishments during this period, including her performance of many gospel songs in the 1958 film, St. Louis Blues, and singing "Trouble of the World" in 1959's Imitation of Life; recording with Percy Faith; and important performances at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1958 and 1959, the 1961 inauguration of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, and the March on Washington in 1963 (she sang the gospel standard 'How I Got Over'). She also sang "Take My Hand, Precious Lord" at the funeral of her friend Martin Luther King, Jr. The late 1960s saw a downturn in her popular success. She ended her career in 1971 with a concert in Germany, and when she returned made one of her final television appearances on The Flip Wilson Show.

Death and legacy:
Mahalia Jackson died in Chicago on January 27, 1972 at age 60 of heart failure and diabetes complications. She was buried in Providence Memorial Park in Metairie, Louisiana. The year of her death, Mahalia was honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, she was posthumously inducted into the Gospel Music Association's Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1978. Mahalia Jackson is widely regarded as the greatest gospel singer in history and one of the voices of the 20th-century. Indeed, her good friend Martin Luther King said "a voice like hers comes along once in a millennium". In addition to sharing her singing talent with the world she mentored the extraordinarily gifted Aretha Franklin (she was a close friend of Aretha's father, C. L. Franklin, and a frequent guest in the Franklin home). She was also good friends with fellow gospel singer Albertina Walker.
In 1997, Jackson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame "as a pioneer interpreter of gospel music whose fervent contralto was one of the great voices of this century".
Despite the inscription of Jackson's birth year on her headstone as 1912, she was actually born in 1911.
