The 3 part New Edition mini series premiered on BET January 24 and I was glued to the TV every night. The casting was amazing and some of the backstories were shocking. Let me just say that Ricky Bell’s meltdown made me cry.

This biopic instantly ranks with my favorite biopics such as The Temptations, What’s Love Got To Do With It, The Five Heartbeats and Ray!

Back in 1985 or so, I had the opportunity to see New Edition on The Candy Girl tour! I had to break out my high school memory album to find the following photo:
