Watch Boyz II Men Perform "Motownphilly" Live @ the DNC Opening Night

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

The Democratic National Convention is under way in Philly at The Wells Fargo Center (home of the soon to be best team in the NBA). In case you’re not tuned in, you missed a trip in the time machine. To get opening night going, the DNC tapped Philly natives Boyz II Men for a performance. The now trio got the crowd moving with a performance of their 1991 debut single, “Motownphilly.” Even in their mid-40s Boyz II Men still have that east coast swing going - watch the performance below. Other appearances scheduled for tonight include Sarah Silverman, Paul Simon, and Demi Lovato.
