Having begun his rise to R&B sainthood as a pre-teen performing with teen idol Stacy Lattisaw, Gill enjoyed tremendous success as part of seminal R&B boy band New Edition replacing Bobby Brown. With Gill as it's leader, the group developed a more mature mainstream sound with hits like "Can You Stand The Rain, N.E. Heartbreak, and the Gill lead "Boys To Men." Gill became a huge solo star in 1990 with the release of Johnny Gill which spawned classic chart toppers; "My, My, My," "Rub You The Right Way" and "Fairweather Friend." Gill went on to do several more records and massive tours as part of New Edition. Gill also joined up with fellow R&B crooners Keith Sweat and Gerald Levert for LSG. Together they produced two multi-platinum CD's, Levert-Sweat-Gill and LSG2. Recently Gill has been a popular fixture as a live performer and on stage.
