CAB brings R&B group 112 to campus

March 21, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Popular R&B recording artists "112" will perform at Miller Auditorium on Thursday, March 28, at 8 p.m.

Sponsored by the WMU Campus Activities Board, the concert is open to the public, with tickets available through the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office at 269 387-2300, toll-free 800 228-9858, or on the Web <www.millerauditorium.com>. Thickets are also available through all Ticketmaster outlets. Tickets for WMU students begin at $14. General admission tickets begin at $19.

The Atlanta-based 112 quartet has recorded several albums. Their self-titled 1996 debut album, which produced the hit singles "Only You" and "Cupid," and the 1998 release "Room 112" both achieved double-platinum status, selling more than two million copies. The latest album from 112, "Part III," features successful singles, "Dance with Me," "It's Over Now" and "Peaches & Cream."

The style of 112 has been described as a mixture of ballads and up-tempo R&B. The group has worked with many other successful artists, including Wayne Morris of Boyz II Men, Al B. Sure, the late Notorious B.I.G., and Mase.

In 1998, 112 served as the opening act for singer Whitney Houston's nationwide tour. When asked about the group, Houston remarked that they are "incredible and one of the most beautifully soulful groups out there." More recently, 112 served as an opening act for Janet Jackson on her latest tour.
