There are a few things you can count on in this world—and one of them is legendary R&B group Boyz II Men absolutely killing a vocal performance. Wanya, Nate and Shawn are some of the best to ever do it, so it should be no surprise that they delivered a recent rendition of the national anthem that has everyone swooning and longing for more.
Boyz II Men belong to a very select group of singers who don’t any extra frills to make them sound amazing, as their many acapella renditions have taught us, and at a recent football game they showed all the newbies out there how it’s done…effortlessly.
Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris’ soul-stirring vocals took the national anthem to new heights when the group performed before the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles vs. Atlanta Falcons game on September 6. They started off slow and subtle, revving up anticipation before adding the group’s signature runs and harmonies to make the song all their own.
As expected, the crowd and social media took notice and couldn’t help but praise the multi-platinum, multiple Grammy-winning group. It’s as if no time had passed from their record-breaking, chart-topping heyday, as they sounded just as good as they did back in the day when their brand of R&B reigned supreme.
Boyz II Men clearly appreciated all the loved they received and let fans know it by retweeting several of the celebratory messages they received throughout the night. The biggest-selling R&B group of all-time has continued to make music and tour over the years, but after their latest performance…we need even more! They were recently added to the Bruno Mars tour as one of the replacements for Cardi B who is still on maternity leave. There is no doubt that the young Bruno Mars fans will fall in love with Boyz II Men just like we all did back in the day.
