Young Singing Stars

Michael Jackson began his professional singing career at age six when he joined his brothers’ group, The Jackson Brothers. When Michael began singing lead vocals the band changed their name to The Jackson 5. At that same time period, Donny Osmond began singing with his brothers professionally. Donny made his public debut on the Andy Williams show at age five and began his trip to stardom with his brothers, The Osmonds.

Hi Hi Hazel was a regional hit in 1966, sung by Gary and The Hornets. Back in 1966 Gary & The Hornets band members ranged from 6 to 13 years old! They were from Franklin, Ohio and were popular in the Dayton and Cincinnati area in 1966 and 1967. The number of young singing stars is far too many to include in this short post, but I cannot end without mentioning that Paul Anka was just sixteen when he wrote and recorded his hit song, Diana, in 1957.
