Biography

Janet Jackson first appeared on stage in April 1974, singing and doing impressions alongside her brother Randy in the Jackson family’s Las Vegas act. In 1976, she appeared on The Jacksons, a summer replacement television show.

Janet sold more than six million copies, and featured ‘Any Time, Any Place,’ which became Jackson’s 14th gold single, tying her with Aretha Franklin as the female solo singers with the most gold singles. In addition, ‘That’s the Way Love Goes’ earned a Grammy nomination for Best Rhythm & Blues Song. Jackson’s sixth album, The Velvet Rope (1997).
