The 2 oldest members of the famed Jackson 5, who last performed at the high school in 1971 for their TV special Goin' Back to Indiana, also toured the performing arts classrooms, before being treated to a live demonstration of the orchestra, dance, voice, and recording lessons the pupils have taken part in.

"You guys are so good," Jackie, 68, gushed while hugging student singer Taylor Iman, who performed the band's hit "I'll Be There," according to WENN.com.

The singers also shared advice about how to make it in the music and entertainment industries.

"You have to work hard," Tito, 66, advised, while Jackie encouraged the kids to "follow their dreams and never give up."

The Jackson 5 also featured siblings Jermaine, 65, Marlon, 62, and Michael, who died at age 50 in 2009.
