Boyz II Men celebrate 20th anniversary with new CD

Wow, who knew it had been 20 years of Boys II Men? I remember 'Motown Philly' like it was yesterday. I have seen them in concert and they definitely know how to put on a show. I am glad that they are back out on the road bringing us real music again.

After 20 years, Boyz II Men have not reached the end of the road in their music career. In fact, the group is preparing to celebrate their milestone anniversary this year with a new album, including reworked versions of their classic hits.

"Nothing too extreme or dramatic, but we've added a few things here and there," says Shawn Stockman of their coming project.

Boyz II Men brought their Motown-Philly harmonies to the masses when they made their debut with "Cooleyhighharmony" in 1991; propelled by hits like "End of the Road" and "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday," the Philadelphia-based group's first album sold more than 9 million copies. Their sophomore CD, "II," sold 12 million copies.

Stockman says the group, which originally included Wanya Morris, Nathan Morris and Michael McCary, had no idea how huge their achievements were.

"We were so busy just working ... we didn't think too much about how it would impact the world, which is probably a good thing, because it kept us sharp and kept us focused, even to this present day," he said. "Looking back, it's a great thing. It's hard to talk about it because it's something that we think it's a great milestone in our careers, but we're still hungry, and we still feel like we have so much more to contribute, musically and otherwise."
