    Boyz II Men Boulevard: Philly Street to Be Named After R&B Group

    It's not the end of the road for Boyz II Men after all.

    A Philadelphia street will be renamed in honor of the Grammy Award-winning group during a dedication ceremony on Saturday, June 24. 

    The best-selling R&B group of all time will have a namesake stretch of Broad Street between Christian and Carpenter Street. The new "Boyz II Men Boulevard" will be located outside their alma mater, Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts. The event is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.

    Philadelphia Councilmen Kenyatta Johnson and Mark Squilla led the effort to rename the street located west of CAPA’s building.  

    Later that evening, the hometown boys will also perform at the Wells Fargo Center the day after the ceremony. The group is currently on the road with New Kids on the Block and Paula Abdul as part of the Total Package summer tour.

    On Fourth of July, the trio will be honored as local history-makers during the Celebration of Freedom Ceremony at Independence Hall. They will also make an appearance during the Concert on the Parkway alongside R&B singer Mary J. Blige.

    Saturday’s event is part of the Wawa Welcome America festival celebrating Philadelphia and the history of the United States.
