A cover from Sly And The Family Stone(listen to the original Here). The Jackson 5 certainly picked it up a notch. However, I feel Michael's preadolescent vocals didn't fit in very good(besides his backups). Just thought it too high-pitched for this gourmet funkedelic tune. Otherwise, The Jackson 5 have definitely outdone Sly and The Family Stone!
EVERYBODY IS A STAR Lyrics Who would rain and chase the dust away Everybody wants to shine Who comes out on a cloudy day 'Til the sun that does you proud When the system tries to bring you down Every hand to shine tonight You don't need darkness to do what you think is right Ooh, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa Ooh, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa Ooh, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa EVERYBODY IS A STAR I can feel it when you shine on me Oh, I love you for who you are Not the one you feel you need to be Ever catch a falling star Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground EVERYBODY IS A STAR One big circle going round and round Ooh, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, w…
An outtake from The Jackson Five studio album "Maybe Tomorrow". Michael's voice-box start going through the first birth-pangs of change.

A Rendition to Willie Hutch's 1973 classic(listen to his version Here). Michael Jackson also covered "I Wanna Be Where You Are" from him. Eventually, Willie Hutch became their producer in place of Bobby Taylor.
Covered from a hit by "The Four Tops"(listen to it Here) in 1964. It ultimately failed to receive a spot on The Jackson Five "ABC" album. But resurfaced on two of their compilations "Motown Superstars Sing Motown Superstars" and "Soulstation".
