The Jackson mystique has a hold on B. Howard


For fans of the Jackson clan, Hayvenhurst is the family’s rambling and intriguing compound in Encino, Calif., the place where the late Michael Jackson once lived.

For R&B/pop singer-songwriter-producer B. Howard, who may or may not have a blood connection with the Jacksons and who recently signed a deal with King Empire Entertainment, an upstart record label/artist management company in Ottawa, Hayvenhurst was the beloved spot where he spent much of his early life including summers and vacations.
