Song: Who’s Lovin You / I Want You Back

Artist: The Jackson 5

Record Label: Motown Records M 1157

Recorded: August 6, 1969

Released: October 7, 1969

Smokey Robinson and The Miracles originally recorded this song in 1960. Nearly every major Motown group followed up with their own cover including The Supremes, The Temptations, and Brenda Holloway.

The Jackson 5’s version managed to hit No. 1 on pop and R&B music charts leading to their subsequent performance on the Ed Sullivan show.

Because of Michael Jackson’s emotional performance, it became one his most requested hits until his voice started to change in 1972.

In memory of his work, Shaheen Jafargholi performed this song at Michael Jackson’s memorial service in July 2009.
