Rebbie Jackson is a self-taught musician who began her career after her father bought her a guitar at 17. Jackson became most known for her 2002 crossover hit, "Again," which charted on the pop, R&B and dance charts. Jackson released her first album in 2001 at age 19; That album, Again, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary R&B Album.

Maureen Reillette "Rebbie" Jackson-Brown (/ˈriːbi/; born May 29, 1950) is an American singer. She is the eldest child of the Jackson family of musicians. She first performed on stage with her siblings during shows in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in 1974, before subsequently appearing in the television series The Jacksons. Her sister La Toya was born on her sixth birthday. At age 34, Jackson released her debut album Centipede (1984). The album featured songs written by Smokey Robinson, Prince, and Jackson's younger brother Michael, whose contribution (the title track "Centipede") became Rebbie's most successful single release. By the end of the 1980s, the singer had released two more albums in quick succession: Reaction (1986) and R U Tuff Enuff (1988). (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Rebbie Jackson is from New York and started making music in the early ‘20s. Her first single, “Ain’t Nobody,” was recorded in 1953 and released in 1955. Although she wasn't big in the US, she still managed to release 11 number ones. Her most recognizable hit, “It’s too soon to say goodbye,” was released in 1967 and was written by the Beatles and recorded in their first session.

She decided to marry her childhood love, Nathaniel Brown, and move with him to Kentucky to start their family. Her father was the only one who opposed, arguing for her musical career instead. He was so against it that he refused to walk her down the aisle. (Source: nygal.com)
