    Default Marlon, Tito and Dealz visited Gary (Indiana) last week !

    Marlon and Tito Jackson were on monday may 18th in there hometown, Gary, Indiana. "We are just visiting ... filming some footage to put in the family vault," Marlon said as Tito smiled while taking another nibble of food, in a restaurant.

    The brothers, along with their nephew Sigmund "Siggy" Jackson -- Jackie Jackson's son AKA Dealz-- and Gary Mayor Rudy Clay were part of a small group dining in a separate area.

    The daylong visit wasn't publicized, but word leaked out when the Jackson brothers began showing up around the city.

    The brothers were first spotted at Roosevelt High School. Sherice Grant, an instructor at DancExcel, bumped into Marlon and Tito there. People said the brothers stopped at City Hall and did some filming before heading to Dusties restaurant.

    Marlon said the filming here is for a project that he wouldn't elaborate on but he hinted it involved the cable network A&E.

    Dealz said this was his first time visiting Gary. "I am really enjoying myself. I am loving the people, visiting different places. I ate a great meal. It is great to visit the city where everything began," he said.

    Thanks for posting. It's so rare that one ever hears anything about Marlon, he's managed to stay mostly low profile throughout the past several years. Still married to his first wife I believe, and has some beautiful daughters.

    Supposedly Marlon and Michael were very close, hopefully that still holds true.

    I am happy for them.... sounds like a nice project
    Sony/ATV, a joint venture between Sony Corp (6758.T: Quote, Profile, Research) and pop star Michael Jackson, expects more music catalogues to be put up for sale this year as people look to cash in profits in a slowing economy, said CEO Martin Bandier in a telephone interview.

    "To the extent that large acquisitions become available, Sony/ATV is in a particularly good place," he said. "It's hard to overpay for a great Picasso...if you're buying quality music that will last for generations. Great songs are a rarity."

    Sony/ATV is a traditional music publisher which makes money every time a piece of music is used on a variety of outlets including radio, movies, live performances, advertising as well as a share from recorded music sales.

    Michael P. Schulhof, president and CEO, Sony Corporation of America, said: "Michael Jackson is not only the most successful entertainer in history; he is also an astute businessman. Michael understands the importance of copyrights and the role they play in the introduction of new technologies. In joining us for this new venture, Michael recognizes Sony's leadership in developing and realizing new technologies that serve to expand the creative horizons of artists such as himself.

    He added, "To have Michael Jack son's song catalogues joined with ours will enable both Sony Music and Michael Jackson to aggressively build on a publishing portfolio filled with songs that are acknowledged as the cornerstones of popular music today."

    Tito said that people don't relise how close Michael and Marlon are, in an interview with MJNI magazine KING in the mid 1990's. So I presume they are still very close.

    Default Gary homecoming: Janet and Randy Jackson visit childhood home, Roosevelt High School

    by Eloise Marie Valadez | Oct. 27, 2017 | Northwest Indiana Times

    Janet Jackson had a sentimental homecoming Friday in Gary.

    The singer, youngest sibling of the Jackson family, and her brother Randy, spent time at the Jackson childhood home at 2300 Jackson St. in Gary. They also visited Roosevelt High School to talk with students and encourage them to pursue their dreams.

    The Jacksons' visit to Gary came a day after Janet's tour stop on her State of The World Tour at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.

    Janet told Roosevelt students she was proud to be back in Gary.

    "The last time I was here I was eight years old," said the Grammy-winning singer. She said when her brothers began to get famous and the family moved to Los Angeles she was about two or three years old.

    The soft spoken singer said she was excited to be back but it was also very emotional.

    "When I saw the house ... I just started crying," she said, with tears in her eyes. "Me and my family are so blessed. I'm so thankful," Janet said.

    "We wanted to come here and visit Roosevelt," Randy said. Jackson siblings Jackie and Rebbie attended the school when the family lived in Gary.

    "When we left (Gary) all we had was love and a dream," Randy added.

    During the Q & A, students asked advice for going after an entertainment career, wondered who the siblings admire in the music field and other inquiries about their show business lives.

    Janet told students she looks fondly on those younger days with her family.

    "I miss those times when I was with my brothers and sisters and we would all be performing together," she said.

    The singer, who had her first child in February at the age of 51, said she feels extremely blessed to have had a chance to have a baby.

    "Every doctor told me it wasn't possible. But I've got a beautiful, healthy son. He'll be 10 months old," she said.

    When asked advice for going after dreams, Janet said "Stay focused and keep your dream." She added there's much out there to detain people from reaching their goals.

    Randy added, "Be the best you can be, work hard and keep God in it."

    "Yes, that's most important, " Janet stressed. "Always keep God close to you."

    Janet said she had a number of favorite musical artists but her main inspiration in the business definitely has roots with her brothers.

    "That's where it all started for me," she said. She also enjoys various jazz musicians, the iconic Motown artists, Bruno Mars and Chance the Rapper.

    When a student asked what a favorite past album of hers was, she singled out "Rhythm Nation."

    "When I was writing it, the things (that were happening then) are still happening." She pointed to "drugs, ignorance, racism" and the other tragedies and evils currently going on in the world.
