LaToya Jackson: All Of It Unfolds In The Show

Posted: Updated:

La Toya Jackson is back with new episodes of her show, ‘Life With La Toya’, and in this week's episode, La Toya's father Joe Jackson almost reveals a big secret being kept by La Toya's business partner and constant companion Jeffre Phillips.

Fun facts about LaToya Jackson: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) She is an American singer-songwriter, musician, author, television personality, actress, businesswoman, philanthropist, activist and former model. She is the fifth child of the Jackson family. She maintained a career as a singer throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and returned to music in 2004 with her Billboard charting songs "Just Wanna Dance" and "Free the World". An EP called Starting Over was released on June 21, 2011.

2) In 1980, Jackson released her self-titled debut album. In order to distinguish herself from her famous brothers, The Jacksons, La Toya only wanted her first name on the album. "I begged just to have it 'La Toya'. But my father said, 'It's your last name. You got to use it.' But I wanted to see what I could do as an individual." The first single "If You Feel the Funk", became a modest hit, climbing into the Top 40 of the US R&B chart. Her second single, "Night Time Lover", was produced by younger brother Michael, who provided backing vocals. In turn, she provided the opening scream on her brothers', The Jacksons, 1980 hit, "This Place Hotel" as well as backing vocals on brother Michael's 1984 solo hit "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)".

3) La Toya Jackson has a three-octave voice and possess the vocal range of a light-lyric soprano which soars to a high D#6 in her single, "Bet'cha Gonna Need My Lovin'."The Evening Independent says that she has an "attractive, pleasant voice that is matured and controlled." Andrew Hamilton of Allmusic describes her voice as a light, wispy "sexy whisper".Like her siblings, Michael and Janet, she is mainly a pop, R&B and dance music performer but she has also dabbled in rock as heard in her song, "No More Drama", reggae in her signature song "Heart Don't Lie, and jazz in "I Don't Want You to Go."

‘Life With La Toya’ airs Saturday nights at 10:00pm on OWN.
