Happy Thanksgiving!! 2017 has certainly been the year of New Edition @neweditionofficial! NE started off the year with receiving their long overdue star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony was enjoyed by the largest crowd HWOF officials had ever seen. The next night the group's biopic, The New Edition Story, premiered on BET. The three-night mini-series was viewed by 29 million plus, unexpected and record numbers. Bell Biv DeVoe @officialbellbivdevoe released their first album in 15 years. 'Three Stripes' peaked at number two on the charts. New Edition was honored at the 2017 Trumpet Awards in April with a Lifetime Achievement Trumpet. NE also received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards in June, which included a grand tribute by the cast of The New Edition Story. Ralph Tresvant @therealralphtresvant celebrated his first anniversary as a radio DJ on Inside The Ride. Listeners were given a preview of some new tracks Rizz is working on. Johnny Gill @realjohnnygill22 joined the cast of 'Momma's Boy' and continues to enjoy the success of his 'Game Changer' album. Bobby Brown @kingbobbybrown continues to tour, performing in many cities in 2017. Mike Bivins @617mikebiv continues to be active in his hometown's community. Mike hosted a successful basketball summer classic and was a speaker on several panels in 2017 including Harvard's Music & Entertainment Career Chat. Ron DeVoe @bigrondevoe became a dad for the first time with the birth of his twin boys, Ronald III & Roman. Ricky Bell @mrrickybell and Ronnie celebrated their 50th birthdays this year, both looking as youthful as ever. And, the NE fanmily has grown tremendously. NE is enjoying a resurgence since the airing of the biopic, with younger audiences enjoying their music. Their earlier music re-entered the charts after the airing of the biopic. Lots to be thankful for!!

Tony Thompson, the lead singer of the group Hi-Five, his voice has always touched me so deeply every since i was a young child, and Tony has been weighing very heavy on my heart lately, so I wanted to honor his memory today. One of my favorite songs in the world is 'I Can't Wait Another Minute' by Hi-Five, and I've seen the video so many times, until recently it hit me, the major impact New Edition had on Hi-Five! Watching the video, I saw a lot of Ralph in Tony. I came across a Hi-Five interview that further verified my notion that NE had a great influence on the group Hi-Five as a whole. It breaks my heart that Tony is no longer here with us to shine his light on the world, but we promise to keep his memory alive forever! We love you Tony!! 🙏🏾❤ #InsideTheRide#NewEdition#RalphTresvant#HiFive
