About Bell Biv Devoe
Bell Biv Devoe -- Ricky Bell, Mike Bivins and Ron Devoe -- have been bridging the gap between R&B and Hip-Hop music with a pop-feel-appeal-to-it for more than 25 years. A direct byproduct of the hugely successful 1980's vocal quintet “New Edition”, “BBD” merged the irresistible sounds of Hip-Hop beats, New Jack Swing and R&B harmonies
The group's wildly successful debut album Poison sold 4 million copies and featured 4 classic hits. In addition to the Platinum selling title track, the album featured "Do Me," "When Will I See You Smile Again," and "BBD...I Thought It Was Me." BBD's follow up album, "WBBD-Bootcity” (A Remix LP)“ sold over 700,000 units, while the 1993 album Hootie Mack was gold-certified.
Presently Ricky, Mike and Ron are stronger today than ever before. Since the early days with New Edition, BBD has sold over 20 million albums worldwide and has won the hearts of millions of fans globally. BBD’s many accolades include numerous Grammy nominations, three American Music Awards, two Soul Train Awards, countless “Keys to The City,” as well as an abundance of esteemed salutations for their many humanitarian efforts. Most recently Ricky, Mike and Ron were bestowed (along with Ralph, Bobby & Johnny) with the 2013 Soul Train Music Awards Lifetime Achievement honor and their early music careers were dramatized in BET’s The New Edition Story, a 3-part miniseries chronicling the lives of BBD and the other New Edition members. BBD’s extraordinary accomplishments have set them apart from their peers and have cemented them as pioneering icons in their own right.
About the Kings Theatre
The historic Kings Theatre reopened its doors in 2015 as one of New York’s premiere performing arts venues. Providing a destination for large-scale popular entertainment and serving as a resource for local arts groups and community organizations, the City-owned Theatre is a cultural and economic cornerstone of the Flatbush community and a major fixture to Brooklyn’s vibrant cultural landscape. The Kings Theatre was originally designed by Rapp & Rapp in 1929 and was one of the five Loew’s ‘Wonder Theatres’ built in New York and New Jersey during that period. Featuring high curved ceilings, ornate plaster walls, wood paneling, and a glazed terra-cotta ornamental façade, the classic 20th-century movie palace was inspired by the French Renaissance Revival style of the Palace of Versailles and the Paris Opera House. Spearheaded by ACE Theatrical Group and designed by Martinez+Johnson Architecture, with Gilbane Building Company serving as construction manager, the redevelopment project both revives the historic structure’s original splendor and transforms the Theatre into a state-of-the-art facility with over 3,000 seats—the largest of its kind in Brooklyn. The Theatre was recently selected as a recipient of the 2014 New York State Historic Preservation Award for excellence in preservation and revitalization, and was listed on the National
Register of Historic Places in 2012. Follow kingstheatrebklyn on Facebook / @kingsbklyn on Twitter & Instagram for announcements and updates!
