Boyz II Men
Boys II Men – originally made up of Michael McCary, Nathan Morris, Wayna Morris and Shawn Stockman – are an R&B vocal group from America, who found fame during the 1990s with Motown Records.
Their style of music includes emotional ballads and Acapella styles. During the 1990s the group found international stardom after the release of their first number one single “End of the Road” in 1992. They are amongst the biggest names in Acappella and R&B.
The group were formerly known and started out as ‘Unique Attraction’, which started when two of the members started performing together at their High School. Some members joined and left throughout the early years, but with their permanent group members finally together, they changed their name to Boyz II Men.
After meeting the artist Michael Bivins, back stage at a gig and performing for him and his group mates, Bivins gave the group his number and after more contact he agreed to help produce the group. There was however some delays as the group started having personality clashes, which led to Marc Nelson leaving the group, making it a quartet.
Boys II Men’s debut album was released in 1991 called “Cooleyhighharmony”, and as promised was produced by Michael Bivins. “Cooleyhighharmony” did extremely well and sold over nine million copies as well as winning a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
In 1992 the group joined MC Hammer on his “2 Legit 2 Quit” tour as his opening act and have since gone on to do many tours around the country. And in 2013, Boys II Men were given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
At the start of January in 2013, the group appeared on “The View” with “New Kids on the Block” and “98 Degrees” to announce a joint tour that would start that summer, and on February of that year they announced that they would soon stop touring and begin doing shows in Las Vegas instead.
You may have also seen that the following year they appeared at the end of an episode of “How I Met Your Mother”, doing an Acapella performance. Their eleventh album “Collide” was released on October 21, 2014.
