Michael Bivins was only a sophomore in high school when he hit the road to tour with New Edition and rise to superstardom. The music he made as a founding member of the R&B group became the soundtrack of millions of people’s lives and still takes many back to a sweeter time.
Bivins’ success only continued with his second group, Bell Biv DeVoe, formed with New Edition members Ricky Bell and Ronnie DeVoe. The trio’s first album Poison topped Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart and made unforgettable waves in music.
Since then, Bivins has done everything but slow down. He has used his keen eye for talent to groom, manage, and produce some of the biggest acts, including Boyz II Men. Bivins also adds entrepreneurs, music executive, philanthropist, and film producer, among many other projects.
Needless to say, Bivins is a true powerhouse and inspiration who has been in the game for 40+ years and doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon. Join us as we host a one-on-one with the music mogul. See you on August 2 at 4:15PM!
