Boyz II Men is a multi-vocalist-led R&B group who were among the first male artists to adopt a technical approach to melodic music. They have been compared to artists like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, but are set apart by their own soulful masculine approach to the R&B genre. The group was formed in 1988 at Philadelphia’s High School of the Creative and Performing Arts by Nathan Morris and Marc Nelson. They took their name from New Edition’s song “Boys to Men.” Alongside Wayna Morris, Shawn Stockman, and Michael McCary, Nathan Morris and Marc Nelson snuck backstage at a Bell Biv DeVoe concert.

They sang an acapella version of “Can You Stand the Rain” to Michael Bivins. Bivins offered them a deal right away. Marc Nelson quickly left the group, and the remaining quartet went on to record their debut album Cooleyhighharmony.
Their sound has been dubbed as “hip-hop doo-wop,” although they’ve developed more of a soulful R&B sound with influences of the ‘60s and ‘70s over the years. Their debut album won the Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group which launched the group into stardom. They soon joined MC Hammer’s Too Legit to Quit tour, which was only the first of a long line of successful live performances.
Boyz II Men began their touring journey by joining MC Hammer after the release of their debut album. It was an impactful experience as their tour manager Khalil Roundtree was shot and killed in Chicago. The group rededicated their hit single “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” to him. The tragedy seemed to only add depth to their soulful songs. They spent the majority of 1995 touring the world as well as opened their own recording studio. In 2011, they headlined a “Love Cruise” to celebrate their 20th anniversary. It took place over Valentine’s Day weekend and traveled from Miami to Nassau. In 2013, they went on a major tour with New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees. Then, soon after, they announced a residency in Las Vegas where they would perform shows at the Mirage Hotel and Casino. In 2018, Boyz II Men performed at the NFL 18-19 season kickoff at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.
