Did You Know: “I’ll Be There” By The Jackson 5

This afternoon on our ‘Tickets @ 2’ feature, listen for “I’ll Be There” by The Jackson 5, be the 7th caller and win a 4-Pack to tickets to see Dream Works Animation’s new movie “Turbo” courtesy of the Auto Club.

This was the first Jackson 5 hit not written by The Corporation, a collection of Motown writers lead by the chief of the label, Berry Gordy. This # 1 was written by Hal Davis (who also produced it), Bob West, Willie Hutch, and Berry Gordy. In the song the guy is telling his former lover that he will always be there for her, and that even if she finds someone new, she can always go back to him.

The lead vocals were shared by Michael and Jermaine Jackson.

We’ll be taking caller # 7 at 1-800-232-KRTH.(5784). Good luck!
