Boyz II Men Serenades Manila in September
Ovation Productions presents Boyz II Men LIVE in Manila this September 17, 2014! The immensely talented group is composed of baritone Nathan Morris with tenors Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris. The September concert was in response to many Filipinos’ clamor to have the popular American R&B vocal group to once again visit the archipelago and perform their very much loved hits of the 1990s. Filipinos possess an unwavering love for romantic ballads, and Boyz II Men—the ones behind soulful tracks such as “I’ll Make Love to You”, “End of the Road”, “On Bended Knee”, “Water Runs Dry”, “One Sweet Day” (with Mariah Carey), and “4 Seasons of Loneliness” among other hits —will more than satisfy this craving. The group has also done recordings of Motown’s Greatest Hits, a CD of the greatest love ballads, and other covers of popular hits.
Boyz II Men’s vast success soared to great heights in the 1990s after releasing “End of the Road” which reached the top of the charts and conquered the number one place of Billboard Hot 100 for thirteen weeks. This caused one of the best vocal groups to break Elvis Presley’s record of longevity in the charts. Boyz II Men wowed the world once more by breaking their own record with the songs “I’ll Make Love to You” and “One Sweet Day” (with Mariah Carey), at fourteen and sixteen weeks respectively. The latter track still holds the all-time record for longevity in the Billboard Hot 100.
As one of the most massive names in R&B and a capella, Boyz II Men endeavored to put R&B back into the mainstream as it had been in the 1970s. The group has indubitably put a resonating impact on music and certainly brought back R&B to the popular scene. Boyz II Men garnered an astonishing cumulative 50 weeks on the number one spot of the Billboard Hot 100, a feat that only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and Mariah Carey have surpassed. This proves how impactful Boyz II Men’s music has become and how the power of their voices has shaped and defined a capella and R&B music.
