Boyz II Men Has Been Down One Member for Nearly Two Decades

By

If you haven’t been paying attention to the R&B group Boyz II Men since the release of their hit single "I’ll Make Love to You" in 1994, you may be surprised to learn that the Grammy-winning quartet is now performing as a trio.

The crew lost its official fourth member in 2003 with the departure of bass singer Michael McCary, but has continued to make music since then, releasing a total of seven albums in the last 16 years. 

So, what happened to the fourth member of Boyz II Men?

Sadly, Michael was forced to quit the group in the early aughts due to chronic back pain brought on by multiple sclerosis, a disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord. He initially kept the condition a secret from his longtime bandmates.
