There is nothing more satisfying than seeing great music used for a great cause. So when Gowhere NY heard that the 'Queen of Media', Perez Hilton was throwing a concert in NYC at the Hammerstein Ballroom, we were all over it. Aligned with Spirit Day, 100% of the ticket sale proceeds went to the GLSEN (the Gay Lesbian & Straight Education Network), an organization for students, parents and teachers focused on ensuring a safe environment in schools. The ballroom was packed with a lively crowd, eager to see what and who Perez had in store. Alot of big names were handpicked by Perez to show love on the red carpet and perform on stage for this epic night. The party jumped off when DJ Pauly D took the stage and had the crowd fist pumping to his dance-worthy playlist. It's safe to say the best singing performances were saved for last when Boyz II Men took the stage, followed by Mary J. Blige for the grand finale. Both acts were amazing as the crowd naturally sang along to the classics and closely tuned in to some new material.
Above is a brief interview with Boyz II Men sharing some details on their new album, Twenty (available now everywhere), their non profit organization "The Boyz II Men House", and some advice for upcoming R&B singers trying to make it in the game today. So check it out and see what the Boyz had to say for yourself. Special thanks to LFB Media Group for inviting us to the event and shoutout to the sponsors: OpenSky, Music Choice’s SWRV TV, Brita FilterForGood Music Project, SOUL by Ludacris, popchips, ZICO: Pure Coconut Water, TY KU, UV Vodka, Asahi Beer, and BlogAds.
