Berry Gordy to write intro for Jackson memoir

Motown founder Berry Gordy will write the introduction to a reissue of Michael Jackson's memoir, "Moonwalk."

A statement released by publisher Harmony Books says Gordy, whose label also featured superstars such as Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye, will offer memories of Jackson as a child star and of the group formed with his brothers, the Jackson 5.

The Jackson 5 broke through 40 years ago with the No. 1 smash "I Want You Back," and had several other hits before fading in the mid-1970s. Michael Jackson, who died June 25, eventually left Motown and made his record-breaking "Thriller" album for Sony.

Jackson's memoir, originally published in 1988, comes out again in October.
