🎶 Boyz II Men

February 13 @ 8:00 pm

The group Boyz II Men had their beginnings in 1988 at Philadelphia’s High School of the Creative and Performing Arts. Nathan Morris and Marc Nelson were the founding members, and Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman and Michael McCary joined at that time. They called themselves Unique Attraction and developed a cover list of New Edition songs, one of which, “Boyz II Men,” was the inspiration of their future name. After impressing Bell Biv DeVoe member Michael Bivins backstage at a Bell Biv DeVoe concert, Bivins offered a management deal. Marc Nelson left the group before their first recording, and the group then became a quartet. They recorded their debut album, Cooleyhighharmony for the Motown Records label in 1991, and their single, “Motownhilly,” gained the Top Five pop and No. 1 R&B spots on the charts and achieved platinum status. Another single, “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday,” also achieved Top Five pop and R&B spots and achieved gold status.
