Michael and his brothers started their careers at Detroit Motown.
To mark the anniversary of Michael’s death an extended exhibit of memorabilia will be opening on June 25th.
Some of the items on display at the museum, located at 2648 W. Grand Blvd include uniforms the Jackson 5 wore onstage, photographs, awards, a Michael doll, clips of the Jackson 5 cartoon series, as well as a uniform Michael wore early in his solo career.
Michael donated the uniform to the museum in 1988 when he was in Detroit on tour. He also donated his hat and the famous, single rhinestone-encrusted glove (stolen once, and now in a highly secure exhibit).
‘Your Voice with Angelo Henderson’ will broadcast live from the Motown museum on WCHB-AM (1200) from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. on Friday and John Mason will be on the air on WGPR-FM (107.5) with a special tribute to Michael in the afternoon.
There will be a place for any tributes fans bring along, but not on the front porch, like last year, although the big bay window in front of the museum will have an array of Michael and Jackson 5 photos. There will also be a Michael impersonator there.
The Jackson 5 exhibit runs from this Friday until September 30th. General admission is $10.00 for adults, $8.00 for children 12 and under and senior citizens. Summer hours are 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Monday – Saturday.
