The Boston-born group, which made the enduring hits “Candy Girl,” “Mr. Telephone Man,” “You’re Not My Kind Of Girl” and “Can You Stand The Rain” has managed to remain a brotherhood despite the early departure of singer Bobby Brown and the addition of Johnny Gill, among other dramas documented in the BET biopic.
