Michael Jackson grew up in Gary, Indiana., the seventh of nine children.
While his mother, Katherine Jackson instilled a love of God and an appreciation of country music into young Michael, it was Jackson’s father Joseph, a guitar-playing steel worker, who was credited with creating the nation’s first boy band in the form of the Jackson Five.
Michael grew up to be labeled as ‘The King Of Pop’ but many never got a glimpse of Michael’s early ‘normal’ years. For a closer look, check out the photos below.
