LAMC Productions have announced that renowned R&B-inspired pop quartet 98° will perform in February 2020, at The Star Theatre!
This will be 98°’s first time in Singapore where all four members – Nick and Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons, and Justin Jeffre – will be performing on the same stage together.
Back then, 98° had teenage girls everywhere swooning after them. Today, the pop quartet appeals not only to the female audience but also to 90’s music enthusiasts. This isn’t a time warp back to the late 90s, but it’ll certainly give you a major dose of nostalgia as 98° is back to steal hearts and serenade fans for a special, intimate night!
In five short years — from 1997 to 2002 — 98° sold a staggering 10 million records, scored a chart-topping single, “Thank God I Found You,” with Mariah Carey and Joe, and collaborated with their collective idol, Stevie Wonder, on “True to Your Heart,” for the 1998 animated Disney film, Mulan. Their four-million-selling album, 98° and Rising (1998, Motown), spawned the top-5 favorites “Because of You,” “I Do,” and “The Hardest Thing,” while 2000’s Revelation (Universal Records), which sold two million copies, peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200 and yielded a trio of hits, “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche),” “My Everything” and “The Way You Want Me To.”
The group emerged at a time when teen-oriented acts such as the Spice Girls, The Backstreet Boys and NSYNC were just hitting the top of the charts around the world. They differentiated themselves from many of the other teen bands at the time as they wrote much of their own material, which reflected their own R&B influences.
Over the past 16 years, all four members have enjoyed other careers outside of music. Nick, who was recently on Season 25 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, launched a successful solo music career and has starred on TV shows both as an actor (The WB’s Charmed and One Tree Hill) and as a television host (VH-1’s Big Morning Buzz Live, NBC’s The Sing-Off). Drew was crowned season two winner of Dancing with the Stars, been on Broadway, and both brothers opened Lachey’s Bar (A&E). Timmons joined members of Backstreet Boys and ‘NSYNC for VH-1’s Mission Man Band and Nick Carter’s Sci-Fi feature, Dead Seven. Jeffre is involved in various media and cause-related projects stemming from his foray into politics as a mayoral candidate of Cincinnati.
Now, the band reunites for a music spectacle, promising the Singapore crowd a real glimpse into the past through their classic hits!
