R&B icons Boyz II Men are coming to the Lake Michigan College Mendel Center Mainstage on Thursday, November 14, at 7:30 p.m.
Boyz II Men remain one of the most truly iconic R&B groups in music history. The group redefined popular R&B and continues to create timeless hits that appeal to fans across all generations. Recently celebrating their 20th anniversary, the band has penned and performed some of the most celebrated classics of the past two decades. The group’s four Grammy Awards are just the tip of the iceberg. Boyz II Men have won nine American Music Awards, nine Soul Train Awards, three Billboard Awards, and a 2011 MOBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.
The trio holds the distinction of being the best-selling R&B group of all time, with 60 million albums sold. For the past two decades Boyz II Men have given fans a rich catalogue of hits filled with smooth harmonies and enduring themes.
Boyz II Men’s past hits include “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love to You,” “One Sweet Day,” “Motownphilly,” and many others. And their recent albums have earned them major critical acclaim as well. Their Decca label debut, Motown: A Journey through Hitsville USA (Decca/Universal), earned them two Grammy Nominations.
And for Boyz II Men the hits just keep on coming. The group continues to craft new albums and bring their legendary act to stages around the world. Boyz II Men marked their 20th anniversary by releasing a landmark album fittingly titled Twenty. The album contains the group’s first original material in nearly a decade as well as a dozen remastered classic, career-defining hits. Twenty debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, #4 on the Billboard R&B album chart, #10 on the Billboard Digital Album Chart, and placed #1 on the iTunes R&B Soul Album chart. Twenty’s first single, "More Than You'll Ever Know" made it into the top 15 on Urban AC charts.
Beyond making music, giving back is also important to Boyz II Men. The group has its own charity called Boyz II Men House which lends support to individuals and organizations that focus on improving quality of life and helping to unlock human potential, while contributing to the health and vitality of those less fortunate.
Boyz II Men currently have a residency at famed Las Vegas venue The Mirage through the end of the year. The band continues to tour across the country and around the globe, performing a mix of their latest tracks and treasured classics. Boyz II Men have made R&B accessible to the masses and have helped the genre come into its own, and fans throughout the world flock to see them perform at sold out shows. The group recently signed a publishing and recording deal with BMG, so fans can expect new music from their old favorite in the coming year.
