Philly born and bred R&B stalwarts Boyz II Men, who practically provided the entire soulful soundtrack to the 1990s, got a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame last Thursday.
Members Shawn Stockman, Michael McCary and Wayna and Nathan Morris appropriately received a star on the Walk's Motown section near legends like the Temptations and the Supremes.
Nearly every Philadelphian has fond memories of the group or its music - mine involves an elementary school Christmas pageant, "Motown Philly," and a bedazzled backwards Kangol cap.

For the rest of the world, the four CAPA grads are finally receiving some of the international recognition they deserve as a historically talented and prosperous R&B group, having won four Grammys, sold 60 million albums, broken countless Billboard records and been named the most commercially successfully R&B group by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Boyz II Men celebrated their 20th anniversary in October by releasing the appropriately-titled "Twenty," which debuted at Number 20 on the Billboard Top 200, but received tepid reviews and a mixed consumer response.
The group's Walk of Fame star was the 2,456th star given out and the first awarded in 2012.
Here's a throwback to the glory days, not only of Boyz II Men, but of Philadelphia music (with a surprise cameo from the Roots' ?uestlove, who literally is everywhere):
