Precious Moments is the eleventh & second, Arista album from Jermaine Jackson. Released in 1986, the album includes the pop and R&B top-20 hit, "I Think It's Love" (co-written with Stevie Wonder) along with the Top 40 US R&B hit "Do You Remember Me?", and Top 40 Belgian hits "Lonely Won't Leave Me Alone" and "Words Into Action".

The album track "If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful," a duet with Whitney Houston was never released as a single, however, the ballad received significant radio airplay at the time and can still be heard occasionally on certain soft rock/quiet storm-formatted radio stations today and was included on Houston's 2000 compilation Whitney: The Greatest Hits.[citation needed]

"Words Into Action" was featured in the 1986 film About Last Night and was included on the film soundtrack.[2]
