Tribute Tuesday: BOYZ II MEN

Originally from Philly, the group consisted of four guys: Shawn Stockman, Michael McCrary, Wanya Morris and Nathan Morris. They began in 1988 and was the group to be win the early to mid 90's. Their R&B songs were always memorable. You can never listen to a Boyz II Men song without a fantastic harmony and the equally memorable bass voice of Michael McCrary. There is not one person out there who has slow danced to I'll Make Love To You or knew the words to End of the Road. Unfortunately, the group fizzled with the boy band craze in the late 90's, but their classics still made airwaves. They made a few brief comebacks, but none were as successful as what they had when they started. To make matters worse, Michael McCrary left the group after chronic back pain related to his scoliosis. There is not a person who has viewed this blog who has not sang a line of a Boyz II Men song. So as part of our weekly schedule, we here at NUTCHECK VIDEOS dedicate today to arguably the greatest R&B group in music history. Here are some of their classics. Enjoy and sing along if you have to.

uuh...a HUGE correction is needed here! It's nice of you to do the tribute and all, but Boyz II Men, who tour nine months our of every year, have just completed a hugely successful world tour, playing to sold out audiences from Japan to Russia to Vegas, etc. and just garnered yet another Grammy nomination for their latest album which was just released in 2008, have HARDLY fizzled out, guys. GET IT RIGHT!
