Michael Jackson's Nephew, Austin Brown, May Be The Next 'Target' Of Our Affections

The physical similarities between Austin Brown and his late uncle Michael Jackson are extraordinary, but the vocal similarities are downright uncanny. In his debut song, "Target Practice," off of his upcoming debut album, 85, with production help from hit-maker Rodney Jerkins, Rebbie Jackson's son enters our world with a guaranteed dance hit on his hands. Why do I say that? Well, my seven-year-old--a self-professed Michael Jackson groupie--has already decided this is her favorite song of the hour, and she likes pop music like this that is driving the music industry and radio waves right now. As for me, I'm still on the fence, wondering if I like it because it's a good song or that every time Austin taps into his falsetto he sounds identical to his mega-famous uncle who I miss beyond reason. In any case, Austin has the celebrity poise that is befitting an emerging artist. The photos of Austin on his website, while giving us that nostalgic glimmer of Michael, provide a glimmer of hope that there may be another Jackson to have emerged and try their hand in continuing the legacy that the Jackson 5, Janet Jackson and Michael began.
