I'd Like To Get To Know You

Kashif, who just passed away, produced this 1989 song for Jermaine. It was written by the lead singer for Surface, Bernard Jackson. Members of Surface have also worked on a few Rebbie songs.

Thanks for posting that song Duran. I really enjoyed it.

I was listening to the radio while driving home from work today when the host announced the news.
I was like, "Aww man! We've lost another one. :(
A super talented singer, songwriter and producer, he was responsible for a lot of hit songs.
One of my faves is entitled, So Fine, by Howard Johnson. Along with Jermaine's projects, he also produced songs
for Whitney Houston, Evelyn "Champagne" King and many others.

Rest in peace Michael Jones....aka Kashif.

You're welcome. Kashif's sound was popular on R&B radio during the early 1980s and mid 1980s. He had an Unsung episode around a year ago

Yashi Brown

Here's a video uploaded yesterday (Dec. 14) with Yashi (Rebbie's daughter) & Jermaine. They're talking about lyrics people have sent in, and Yashi is singing the song at the end

I saw the show on TV yesterday and enjoyed him being interviewd. He seems to be always so polite and comes across as balanced and smart. But when he started "I´ll be There", I just switched channels. I don´t like him singing the songs that were sung by Michael and live through Michael´s voice. :-(

Would have watched his other performance, though, but I missed that one.

On the news yesterday, they were showing clips of the celebrations around the world and I saw this-but didn't realize Jermaine was there. Thank you for posting-Jermaine sounded GREAT.

Yes Jermaine does sound great. He still got it.

Thanks for posting the videos.
I like the Michael inspired outfits they are wearing in the other video too...with the glitter pants, zipper pants and the armbands.

Thanks you guys.

Or maybe he is giving a tribute to his little brother and not trying to live through Michael's voice. And let's not forget that Jermaine also sings on I'll Be There.

My vote would go for this particular option :yes: Jermaine did great on both songs. He's got some cool solo numbers and that particular tune really rocks. I'll be there is part of the shared J5 legacy and Jermaine has every right to sing it. I bet Michael wouldn't mind it one bit and would be proud to see his brother(s) carrying on. After all, he used to have the J5 medley on his solo tours.

Jermaine Jackson is in Cannes, southern France. On May 24th, he attended a press meeting for World Peace Night at Villa Oxygène.

Both were wearing fashion custom made by German designer Marcell von Berlin couture available at Ivan Bitton Style House.

In the evening, Jermaine and Maday returned to Villa Oxygène to attend World Peace Night, a charity event as part of Adventure of Humanity, where Jermaine also took the stage and performed. The Adventure of Humanity is a none profit project started by Michael Jackson and Nelson Mandela in 1999 and is organized today by Richard Nilsson.

Re-making .......: (The link goes to a long (and off topic!) discussion of the remake).

In the 1971 version of The Beguiled, its noted that Eastwood&#8217;s character is manipulating the women who are portrayed as nothing more but crazy and full of lust. Coppola shifts this narrative and leans more towards a &#8220;who&#8217;s zoomin&#8217; who?&#8221; story and unpacks it from the female perspective. It is clear that Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning&#8217;s characters are more nuanced and have more control in this version. Zacharek dissects this in her review saying, &#8220;If men are manipulators, as many of our mothers have taught us, there&#8217;s a dark side to female desire, too. That may be what this sly, elegant picture is really about: The horror that the more we try to control nature, the wilder it grows, like vines spiraling out of control from between our fingers.&#8221;

She continues, &#8220;Coppola&#8217;s version works much better for the way it subtly nudges our sympathies, sometimes in conflicting directions. This Beguiled is neither anti-man nor anti-woman. Both men and women love the thrill of the chase, and each side has plenty to lose.&#8221; So basically, she&#8217;s saying that everyone in this movie is crazy &#8212; which makes for a good movie-going experience.

Jermaine has a new girlfriend already? Jeez.

Jermaine Jackson and his longtime girlfriend Maday Velázquez posed on the red carpet at the 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France Wednesday. The 61-year-old Gary Indiana native has been dating 23-year-old Velázquez since before his estranged wife, Halima Rashid, filed for divorce in 2016.

Jackson couldn&#8217;t stop grinning as his beautiful girlfriend turned this way and that way for the photogs lining the red carpet. But she wasn&#8217;t amused when the confused photogs yelled out Halima&#8217;s name.

(There is a comment from someone who purports to be her 'ex', in the link comments)

Maday seems to have appeared on a celebrity 'Big Brother' TV programme, and was 'flirting' with someone else. :

Carlos Russe, three-year-old boyfriend of Maday confronted him and said: "I think you were wrong person. A relationship of three years is respected because she told you from the beginning in the house.

Also:
In the U.S., she isn't known, but if you visit Spain, she's a very controversial reality TV star who was on a recent season of Gran Hermano, which is the Spanish language version of the Big Brother reality show franchise.
