Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD, East Coast Family!

"The best $12 I've ever spent!" said IUP junior and Business Major Dionna Jenkins. Boyz II Men performed at Fisher Auditorium, Friday, Nov. 12 in front of what seemed to be a full house. The guys are celebrating 20 years in the music industry but according to Jenkins, it didn't seem like 20 years had gone by,

"It was like it was 1990 the way they were up there singing and dancing!" Jenkins said. "They made me fall in love with their music all over again."

Boyz II Men first hit the scene in 1990, signing their first record deal with Motown Records. With the ability to not only sing and harmonize beautifully, but to also write their own music, it was no wonder why these guys head straight to the top. According to their website, their very first released song as a group, Motownphilly, immediately shot to the top of the charts and sold more than 12 million copies. And they dont seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Although Boyz II Men originally had four members; Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, Shawn Stockman and Michael Mc Cary, only the first three named now make up Boyz II Men. Mc Cary left the group in 2003 after suffering from chronic back pain due to scoliosis.

With their bass singer gone, Boyz II Men still found a way to keep their music alive. Here's what one IUP student had to say about the night's event,

"I thought it was a classy event." said IUP sophomore English mojor Jasmine Childs "They catered to all types of music not just things we know like the two classics R&B and Love Songs, but they dove into rock, blues as well as R&B which just prove that they're the all around "American Band"!"

Personally, I agree. I felt like Boyz II Men left their hearts on the stage and that says a lot about their understanding of the music industry. I didn't feel like I was watching average 40 year old men trying to get back what they had 20 years ago, I felt like I'd taken a time machine back to 1990 and were watching them as young high school students.

"They still got it." said Jenkins.

Even during the show, after so many songs, one of the members would just talk to the audience about their appreciation of our understanding of knowing when to sit down and listen to the lyrics and when to stand up and scream the lyrics.

Here's a video I recorded during the show when the guys came out and decided to give us two more songs!

 

If you attended the concert, or any Boyz II Men concert, what did you think of their performance?

It is said that Olay was a product born from love. The creator of Olay was a chemist named Graham Wulff and he said that Olay was made as a gift for his wife Dinah. But not only Dinah has benefited this creation but millions of women these days have been using it and would still use it for the years to come. Olay is different from other brands of beauty products out there since it is a light, greaseless formula that absorbs quickly to the skin. That is why women are comfortable to use it. Even though Olay has gone though changes and innovations, one thing is still the same and that is making women look and feel beautiful.
