The Pearson siblings, dubbed the British Black Royal Family of Pop, and Britain’s answer to the Jackson Five by the media, burst onto the scene in 1983 and were managed by their father, Buster Pearson.
After performing a sizzling rendition of a song named 'Problematic' for the BBC’s Pebble Mill at one Show the group signed with a major record label TENT/RCA and released their 1985 debut album 'Luxury Of Life' and the rest is, as they say, a phenomenal pop history. Renowned for their dynamic sound and fabulous dance routines they rocked the British and US Pop Charts in the 80s and became a great inspiration to many young people worldwide.
Five Star were the youngest British group to have a number 1 album and the first group to achieve 7 consecutive hit singles from one album in the UK. They also broke Michael Jackson’s record of becoming the youngest group ever to top the British charts and the first Black group to top the UK charts in 1987.

Hailed as the most popular and successful show of its type, Björn Again’s career highlights over the years are many. From performing at Buckingham Palace for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and The Duke of Edinburgh, to touring with Cher, Shania Twain, and playing at Wembley Arena, London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, London Palladium and Hyde Park.
