Discovered by legendary manager and hit record producer, Maurice Starr, NK5 is his newest preteen boy band. Starr is known and respected around the world for discovering, promoting, marketing, and creating pop teen icons, New Kids on the Block and R&B hit teen sensation, New Edition. This new boy band is comprised of five very talented members including 8 year old Lil Redd, 9 year old Gee Que, 10 year old Finess and Lil Gee, and 11 year old Ice.
    Since the beginning of NK5’s career, they have been involved in a very busy work schedule. This includes elementary and middle school performances, The Legends of Soul Concert Series, dance rehearsals, intense vocal training, and serious studio recordings. Their soon to be released album is entitled, “Beautiful Soul.” The album includes the New Edition Billboard number one smash record, “Candy Girl.” Maurice Starr was the original song writer and producer of this number one hit. Other songs featured on the “Beautiful Soul” debut album include the first two singles to be released on the Maurice Starr Entertainment Label. One is the new song of world hope named “2gether We Stand” and the other is the catchy and melodic ballad named “I Like the Rain.” Another song, the dance floor hip hop hit “Games” will keep your feet and body moving nonstop! Additional songs include “NK5 Party Time”, the redo of the hit record “Ooh La La”, originally sung by a Maurice Starr produced act called Perfect Gentlemen and others. On April 28, 2015, in Washington, D.C., NK5 was appointed by U.S. Congressman John Larson as “YOUTH AMBASSADORS OF ANTI-BULLYING AWARENESS.”
    To complete the production team, Starr has joined forces with Joe Young Jr. from Joe Young Studios located in Hartford, Connecticut. Joe will serve as record company president. Starr has also added David Vaughan, the original choreographer of New Edition and New Kids on the Block. Maurice Starr’s motto has always been, “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.” So, get ready, here comes NK5!
