Parx Casino will be hosting the famous Jackson 5 team this fall. The team, formed in 1964, was composed of 5 siblings, all born in Gary, Indiana. The group has had victories and challenges throughout the years, but music has remained their main occupation to date. Their surviving members will perform their only show this fall at the casino’s facility in Bensalem. The show is set for September 10, 2022.
Parx recently launched a new digital brand
Parx Casino recently announced the launch of its new digital brand betPARX. The app is powered by Playtech’s IMS platform to deliver online casino and sports betting products. Players can now play at the online casino from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. The app combines the best online casino games and sports betting experience. It features various slot titles, table games, live dealer games, and sports betting options.
The group’s famous hits
The Jackson 5 was originally composed of 3 siblings, namely Jackie, Jermaine, and Tito. Two cousins would assist them during performances once in a while. The younger siblings Marlon and Michael Jackson joined later and replaced their two cousins. The name Jackson 5 gained roots after these two joined the group. Although Randy Jackson was a talented singer, he could not join the group for the sake of retaining the name Jackson 5.
The pioneering Jackson 5 albums include Destiny and Triumph, released in 1978 and 1980, respectively. Their best hit songs were I Want You Back, ABC, Goin’ Back to Indiana, and I’ll Be There. They also released I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and Dancing Machine.
Universal Family of Schools to benefit
There are different benefits of music, such as entertainment, elevating mood, and reduction of stress. Music is also a source of income for artists. They also use the proceeds for philanthropy and talent development. Proceeds from the Jackson September 5 show will benefit Universal Family of Schools.
The institution is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and runs eight charter schools. It provides different programs for scholars, such as summer school programs, weekend programs, sports, and extracurricular activities. It aims to help students enhance their achievements. The institution is currently serving about 4,300 students.
Parx Casino has a tradition of raising funds to support the school, and the show will be significant in fulfilling this tradition. The funds will support scholars and students who come from underrepresented regions within Philadelphia. The funds help them fulfill their dreams of better education and career.
