Boyz II Men’s discovery is a ‘True Hollywood story’
BROOKS, Calif. – It’s a tale that sounds straight out of the script pages of a feature film. In the waning years of the 1980s, a burgeoning singing group sneaks backstage during a performance by New Edition spin-off group Bell Biv DeVoe. The boys perform an a cappella rendition of New Edition's "Can You Stand the Rain" for New Edition/BBD member Michael Bivins. He’s so impressed by the group that he signs them to a production deal with his own Biv Ten Records company – and the rest is history.
For those interested in “the rest of the story” the group being described is the sensational Boyz II Men, the four-time Grammy Award-winning R&B singers, who return to Cache Creek Casino Resort’s Club 88 on Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. to perform from their roster of well-known hits.
Based on sales, Boyz II Men is the most successful R&B male vocal group of all time, recording five #1 R&B hits between 1992 and 1997 and selling more than 60 million records. Three of their #1 hits, "End of the Road," "I'll Make Love to You," and "One Sweet Day" with Mariah Carey set and broke records for the longest period of time a single remained at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 – the last of them still holding that record. Although their song "On Bended Knee" did not break any records, it was still an immensely popular song that reached #1 and made Boyz II Men the third artists behind Elvis and The Beatles to replace themselves at the number one spot of the Billboard Hot 100.
