Most kids go through childhood being mortal enemies with their brothers and sisters. However, these sibling rivalries straighten themselves by adulthood. They become among our most trusted allies when we grow up.

While siblings are an essential part of life, for better or worse, these vocal groups have achieved success together with their brothers and sisters. Here are five music groups whose members are all siblings:


The Motown music group behind "Who's Holding Donna Now?" and "Time Will Reveal" are all siblings. DeBarge is actually the family name carried by all of its members. Brothers Mark, Randy, and El first began the decade-long R&B act. Bunny, James, and Bobby later joined them.

Together, they have released four albums from 1981 to 1985. It includes the 1985 "Rhythm of the Night," whose title track was their most successful single. In 1986, Bunny and El DeBarge both pursued solo careers later on. Remaining members released the album "Bad Boys" before finally dispersing in 1989.

The Jackson 5

The Jackson 5 is one of Motown's most successful acts and the origin of the King of Pop. The Gary, Indiana music group began with Jackie, Tito, and Jermaine in 1964. Younger siblings Marlon and Michael joined later.

With four consecutive chart-toppers on the Hot 100 - "I Want You Back," "ABC," "The Love You Save," and "I'll Be There" - The Jackson 5 is officially the first group to achieve this feat. These five brothers would be the foundation for the music dynasty that is the Jacksons. The family includes Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and La Toya Jackson, all pursuing successful solo careers.

The Corrs

Bringing traditional Celtic sounds to modern pop has made The Corrs one of the most sought-after music groups from the late 1990s to the early 2000s. Their band name, like almost all entries in this list, is their family name. The three sisters Andrea, Sharon, and Caroline, and their brother Jim make up the band. 

The Dundalk, Ireland natives have set out and conquered the world with their platinum-certified singles. From "Runaway" in 1995, "Breathless" in 2000, to "Summer Sunshine" in 2004, The Corrs have swept audiences with their relatable songs fused with traditional Celtic elements.


Tulsa, Oklahoma, has given birth to one of the biggest pop music groups in the late 1990s with Hanson. Brothers Isaac, Taylor, and Zac first broke through mainstream recognition with the catchy "MMMBop." While the rothers were all trained pianists, Isaac learned guitars, and Zac started with the drums, forming the trio in the early 1990s.

As of 2020, Hanson has released twelve studio albums, the latest being "String Theory" in 2018. The brothers continue to tour and perform live, now supported by touring members Dimitrius Collins and Andrew Perusi.

Bee Gees

The trio of Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb was from the Isle of Man. Starting as a country-folk act, Bee Gees later released a string of iconic dance anthems in the 1970s. This sibling act rose to the top of a music genre mostly popular with the black and gay communities of the time.

With their signature vocal harmonies, the Gibb brothers belted out disco hits "Staying Alive" and "You Should Be Dancing."
