Alright, alright alright. I know what you're all thinking. But DON'T underestimate the power that a has-been group can have over an Orem audience, not to mention my heart strings. Seriously, I have fallen in love with Boyz II Men all over again.
It all started at Missy Porter's house in 4th (or was it 5th?) grade. "On Bended Knee" began to play over the speakers and I shared my first slow dance with a sweaty-palmed boy named Matthew Gaile. I had never heard a more romantic song in my life.
Fast-forward 13 years, and my sisters surprised me with a ticket to join them at a Boyz II Men concert at the Scera Shell outdoor amphitheater. Aaron stayed home with Finn under the guise that he "only ever listened to Boyz II Men at stake dances, if that". Boy did he miss out!

The theater was TOTALLY packed and the crowd was totally psyched. The singers were all so surprised and happy that so many people came, and they really did put on a great show! This short video shows some of their sweet performance skills -- check out those dance moves!
It really was so entertaining...I would see them again any time!
