Sheryl Crow partners with ABC to reveal their new Sunday night programming and gave fans a sneak peek of a special performance of the Jackson 5 classic ‘I Want You Back’ in a new promo video for the station’s red-carpet season premiere event, which will air on the network this Sunday. “If I’m on stage when those shows are on, I will go to ABC.com and, in my bunk, in the tour bus, be watching those shows,” she says of guilty pleasures Brothers and Sisters and Desperate Housewives, which features ‘I Want You Back’ in its national promo campaign.
Sheryl also posted a note to the network’s website explaining her history with the legendary Michael Jackson, for whom she got her start singing backup on his 1987 Bad tour. “The influence of that period looms large in my career and life,” Sheryl writes. “The experience was profound beyond words.”
‘I Want You Back’ is featured on Crow’s latest album ‘100 Miles From Memphis’, which pays homage to the music she grew up with.
The promo video at ABC.com has since been removed.
