Your guide to Philly's diverse creative scene, nightlife, music, food & more
“Motownphilly’s back again…” Remember this? Well, it looks like Philly’s given birth to another group of boys who can blow! From Boyz II Men to Smokey Robinson to Jodeci—you name it, MPrynt will tear it up and put their own soul in it. These crooners-in-the-making have been singing their hearts out for a minute, and word on the street is that they’re the next big thing. Actually, those sweet and sultry harmonies just landed them a deal with Universal Motown!
We caught up with the boys at the Prince Music Theater as they rocked an opening set for Philly 360˚ Creative Ambassador Marsha Ambrosius at Philly Live Pod. And, if you follow them both on Twitter, you’ve probably already noticed how much love MPrynt gets from Marsha. The Philly love doesn’t stop there—their upcoming album will be produced by none other than one of our newest Creative Ambassadors, Andrew “Pop” Wansel. We can’t wait! But, for MPrynt this is just the beginning.
