From the time Jermaine Jackson was 13 years old, he sang and performed alongside his brothers as The Jackson 5. Even then, the talented boys knew that youngest brother Michael was a star, and saw a future filled with his success -- and they were right. In the decades that followed rise of The Jackson 5, both Jermaine and Michael pursued solo careers. As Jermaine produced a series of hits and earned a Grammy nomination, Michael exploded on the scene, breaking world records with his best-selling albums and becoming known as the indisputable King of Pop. Then, tragedy struck the family when Michael passed away at age 50 from cardiac arrest caused by a lethal combination of prescription drugs.

Five years later, Jermaine still thinks of Michael daily -- not of Michael, the superstar solo artist, but of Michael, his kid brother. He recently opened up to Oprah about how he and the rest of the Jackson family are still affected by Michael's death.
