His Deep Interest in Music
Donnie attended a largely black school which motivated his interest in rap and soul music. He admired Michael Jackson, taught himself the moonwalk and even saved up for a red jacket, the kind MJ wore on the “Thriller” music video. In a bid to mirror the success of other all African-American R&B group, Donnie together with his friends formed boy band “New Kids on the Block” in the early 80’s.
NKOTB had it rough at the start as their first album released in 1986 was a major flop, however, with their sophomore album, the band began to receive national recognition. Their third album was also a success peaking at the top spot on the Billboard charts. The band made their major success in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, they received two American Music Awards, sold over 80 million CDs and over $400 million worth of merchandise.
They disbanded in 1994 after their popularity dwindled but came back in 2007 when they recorded and released an album titled “The Block” which debuted at no. 1. The band has since remained active to date. They went on a concert tour in 2008 and another tour between 2011 and 2012 together with famous boy band Backstreet Boys.
In 2014 they received a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Their 2015 concert tour- The Main Event Tour featured the surviving duo of TLC and rapper Nelly. The tour grossed almost $90 million at the box office.
