Boyz II Men Honored with Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Michael Bivins, Terry Lewis, Jimmy Jam, Babyface, and Boyz II Men

The best-selling R&B group of all time, Boyz II Men, joined Hollywood royalty by receiving the 2,456th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday (Jan. 5). Babyface, Michael Bivins, and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were on hand to honor members Shawn Stockman, Wayna Morris, and Nathan Morris at the induction ceremony. Even fourth member Michael McCary, who left the group in 2003 due to health issues, returned for the occasion.

“I can’t explain how happy I am. This is one of the happiest days of my life,” said an emotional Shawn to his friends and family. “The beautiful thing about this is that some of these people I haven’t seen in about 10, 15 years and it’s even deeper than the scar itself. It brought true love and true friendship back together.”

Added Wanya, “It’s the best feeling in the world to 20 years later be standing here in front of everybody and be appreciated, which means that we did our jobs and the job that we did is memorable.”

The trio, who released its 20th anniversary album Twenty last fall, will embark on a 17-city European tour in Berlin on January 13.

    No one is there in spirit. When you die, you stop existing but Lies are so comforting.

    OMG! I can’t believe it has been this many years and they are JUST receiving a star on the Walk of Fame. They should have had this honor presented to them a decade ago – and they still look as good as ever. :) Go Boyz II Men!

    They are true Philly legends and so worthy of all the accolades and praises. Being a Philly native seeing them all together for such a joyous occasion is a blessing.
