Boyz II Men
Established: Formed in 1988 at the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts. 

Members: The group found success as a quartet comprised of Shawn Stockman, Mike McCary and brothers Nathan Morris and Wanya Morris. They were originally a quintet, but member Marc Nelson left the group before the first studio recording.

Biggest hits: "I'll Make Love to You," "One Sweet Day(with Mariah Carey)," "End of the Road," "On Bended Knee" and "A Song for Mama."

Awards: Four-time Grammy-winners and nine-time American Music Award winners.

Fun Fact: To practice, the boys would sing New Editions' "You Can Stand the Rain" in the halls and bathrooms of their high school. 

Trademark style : Preppy with the occasional baseball cap.

Best lyric: "I'll make love to you / Like you want me to / And I'll hold you tight / Baby all through the night" — "I'll Make Love to You"

Where they are today: These guys are still making sweet music. However, only three men remain. Bass singer Mike is no longer with the group. In February 2011, the remaining members are set to embark on a "love cruise" for their longtime fans in honor of their 20th anniversary and Valentine's Day.
