Boyz II Men are an iconic ’90s R&B group made up of Nathan Morris, Michael McCary, Shawn Stockman, and Wanya Morris. They are not only known for their beautiful voices and enormous musical hits but their generosity and philanthropy. Offstage, their fans respect them for their gentlemanly demeanor. The two hottest acts of the ’90s were arguably Boyz II Men and En Vogue, and fans still debate who’d win that singing battle. Boyz II Men were the shining stars of the stage, and people are still left with questions about these iconic figures to this day.
Boyz II Men are R&B legends
The four men all grew up in various parts of Philadelphia. According to Britannica, the name Boyz II Men came from a song performed by New Edition. Eventually, the group met Michael Bivins of New Edition, who later became the group’s manager.
They were together from 1991-2003 when McCary left due to health reasons. The group had a string of hits in the ’90s, with smooth R & B ballads such as “End Of The Road,” and their collaboration with Mariah Carey — “One Sweet Day.” According to their website, Boyz II Men have also won 9 American Music Awards, 9 Soul Train Awards, 3 Billboard Awards, and a 2011 MOBO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

Michael McCary was the bass singer for the group and was sometimes known as Mike Bass. He had to leave the group in 2003 due to what he recently revealed is Multiple Sclerosis. In an interview with Billboard, he described the events that led up to his leaving the group “When I first saw the ailments start to happen, it was like little back spasms at first, and it would get stronger and stronger. They were saying that I have a nerve around the sciatica that was locked in place, that could sever if I stepped wrong.”
Nathan Morris is the oldest of the group developed an interest in music in 4th grade when his teacher discovered he had a natural gift for “relative pitch.” The teacher taught him to sight-read music, and he’s never looked back.
