25 Years of New Edition
I know this going to sound incredibly biaised but I think that New Edition is the greatest boy band ever.
This special combination of voices has graced the airwaves with some of the best songs of the MTV generation delivered with Michael Bivins’ suave personality, Johnny Gill’s smooth and velvety voice, Ralph Tresvant’s sweet distinguished tenor, Bobby Brown’s seamless lyrical style effacing the perceived ‘bad boy’ persona, Ronnie Devoe’s mellow yet dapper aura and Ricky Bell’s collected and assured demeanor. Add to that the marvelous dance moves, the sometimes matching dashing outfits and of course who can forget the haircuts.
We have watched them grow from boys to men…special congratulations to New Edition for keeping it real for the last 25 years
One of the songs that started it all – Candy Girl
A personal favorite – Can you stand the rain?
Bringing the House Down at the BET 25th Anniversary Special with a sensational performance featuring a medley of their songs and a complementary solo performance from Mr Brown
