Boyz II Men and Morris Day and the Time Rock the House at Chastain Park Atlanta
Friday night brought another fun concert to Chastain Park. The concert opened with Morris Day and the Time. The group reunited at the 50th annualGrammys this year with all the original members;Morris Day, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Jesse Johnson, Jerome Benton, Jellybean Johnson, and Monte Moirs. They are great entertainers! The highlight of the concert was when Morris invited many women to join him on the stage to shake their junk.
Next up Boyz II Men. Based on sales, Boyz II Men is the most successful R&B male vocal group of all time. They recorded five #1 R&B hits between 1992 and 1997 and has sold more than 60 million records. Three of its #1 hits, "End of the Road", "I'll Make Love to You", and "One Sweet Day" (with Mariah Carey), set and broke records for the longest period of time a single remained at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100; the last of them still holds the record. Although "On Bended Knee" did not break any records, it was still an immensely popular song that reached #1 and made Boyz II Men the third artists (behind Elvis and The Beatles) to replace themselves at the number one spot of the Billboard Hot 100. Boyz II Men are really the Temptations/Four Tops of the 90's.
We had a fun group and although it was way too humid, a great time was had by all.
