Ricky Bell, Ronnie Devoe, Johnny Gill, Ralph Tresvant, Michael Bivens and Bobby Brown all hit the stage with a rousing performance.
“We knew we had to bring the “A” game and there was no room for anything but an “A”…” ~ Johnny Gill
Starting their set with Can You Stand the Rain, the group surprised the crowd when Bobby Brown hit the stage.
Johnny Gill eventually exited stage left, and Bobby led the group to an old school rendition of “Jealous Girl”…
After their performance, the group discussed what it was like to all be onstage together. Bobby even shared how difficult it was to re-learn all those all dance moves.

It was a classic performance. From NE to BBD to Ralph, Bobby & Johnny’s solo career successes. Everyone was present and well represented!
[Sidebar: Johnny, Ralph and Bobby also revealed that their R&B supergroup ‘Heads of State’ is still very much alive and well. The trio plans on touring more in the future so stay tuned…. ]
“Heads of State”
New Edition is one R&B group that will forever be timeless. Can you think of any other acts that have maintained the same amount of longevity and interest?
