Boyz II Men, one of the most truly iconic R&B groups in music history, bring their superstar talent to the Main Stage at the 33rd annual A Taste of Colorado on Saturday, Sept. 3, at 7:30 p.m. with a concert presented by Jammin’ 101.5. This is the four-time GRAMMY Award-winning group’s second performance at the Festival since 2011. The four-day, free admission, food, music, and entertainment festival will take place Labor Day weekend, Sept. 2 through Sept. 5, in Downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park.
Since the early 1990s, Boyz II Men has firmly established itself as the most successful R&B group of all time with four GRAMMY Awards, five No. 1 Hits, 50 weeks at No. 1, and 60 million albums sold – and counting. Their accolades include nine American Music Awards, nine Soul Train Awards, three Billboard Awards, and a 2011 MOBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Beginning with their debut album in 1991, “Cooleyhighharmony,” which climbed to No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, Boyz II Men has had numerous hits, including “End of the Road,” the group’s first single to reach No. 1 on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 chart, and “I’ll Make Love to You.” Both of these songs won GRAMMY Awards. They also sang a duet with Mariah Carey on “One Sweet Day,” which remained No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart for 16 weeks.
Their most recent release was in 2014 with “Collide,” a landmark album showcasing a new and different sound. Two of the tracks, “Better Half” and “Diamond Eyes” were featured on a special episode of ABC’s hit show, “The Bachelorette.”
Boyz II Men have also released several albums of covers of classic R&B and soul songs. “Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA” was released in 2007 and was nominated for two GRAMMY Awards. In 2009, the group released the album “Love,” a collection of love songs made famous by Bonnie Raitt, Journey, Cyndi Lauper, and more, which was produced by American Idol’s Randy Jackson. The group then released its 20thanniversary album, fittingly entitled “Twenty,” in 2011. “Twenty” debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart, No. 4 on the Billboard R&B Album chart, and No. 1 on the iTunes R&B Soul Album chart.
In 2014, Boyz II Men co-headlined The Package Tour with New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees. Most recently, Boyz II Men have made viral television appearances from their performance on Fox’s “Grease: Live” as the teen angels where they sang “Beauty School Dropout,” the most tweeted about moment of the show to singing a parody Super Bowl song on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.” Later in 2016 the group will make a much-anticipated appearance on ABC’s “Greatest Hits” and they also are working on a Doo-Wop project to be released in 2017.
The trio of Boyz II Men – Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, and Shawn Stockman – continue to bring their legendary act to stages worldwide, including a residency at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
