The Northwest Indiana Times reported the siblings also met with local students, a day after Janet performed a concert in the Chicago area.

She told pupils at Roosevelt High School that seeing the small abode brought tears to her eyes.

'When I saw the house ... I just started crying,' she said, welling up. 'Me and my family are so blessed. I'm so thankful.'

The 51-year-old said she was eight years old the last time she was in Gary.

The family moved out of the industrial city about 50km southwest of Chicago after the Jackson 5 recorded their first album in 1969, when Janet was just a toddler.

She also told students she misses performing with her siblings.

'We wanted to come here and visit Roosevelt,' Randy added, naming the school where their sisters Jackie and Rebbie attended.

'When we left, all we had was love and a dream.'
