That ‘One Sweet Day’ is almost here – one of R&B’s brightest stars, Boys II Men will be performing in Dubai this December.
Close your eyes, make a wish – the group behind some of the smoothest jams ever to grace the music scene will be coming to Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena on the 19th December.
Boys II Men were formed in Philadelphia in the late 80s and their trademark, harmonious ballads formed the backbone of modern R&B. The emotive sound and powerful lyrics often made their tunes first on the team sheet for lovers’ mix-tapes, wedding dances and romantic movies. Credits that persist to this day.
Currently performing as a trio, with baritone Nathan Morris backed by tenors Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman, Boys II Men have amassed quite the trophy cabinet. Four Grammy Awards, nine American Music Awards, nine Soul Train Awards, three Billboard Awards, a 2011 MOBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Best known for ‘End of the Road,’ ‘One Sweet Day,’ ‘Motownphilly’ and one more that you’ll also probably know – but didn’t make it past the censor’s pen. They’re passionate guys.
Catch one of the defining acts of the 90s, to relive your youth or honour an act that pushed R&B to the front of the charts and served as inspiration for much of the music produced today.
