I grew up listening to Boyz II Men on my mini boombox up in my room on the daily and making up my own dances to Motown Philly. Not only that but “End of the Road” was a favorite at my high school dances. It was “Water Runs Dry” that I cried to after some loser bag chose to go out with my friend instead of me. And then there was “Doin’ Just Fine” later on in my life when I went through a massive breakup that should have happened way long before it did. You get the picture. Boyz II Men, along with Mariah Carey, had a big part in my coping with life’s big fat let downs, crisis and even the fun times.
Oh man, where oh where have the days gone where music lyrically and emotionally taught men how to love and treat a lady like Boyz II Men did. You know, REAL baby making music, not the stupid music today that calls women “hoes” and “tricks” lyrics. Yeah Weezy I’m talking about you.
At any rate, to chat with one of the guys from the group was beyond surreal. I have interviewed several big stars and never felt the amount of nerves I had when speaking with Shawn Stockman, one-fourth of the Grammy Award winning group Boyz II Men.
Stockman, now a judge on The Sing-Off, again is influencing the lives of others by making people’s dreams come true. I had the chance to chat about Boyz II Men and future projects and I’m excited to share this with you.
