98⁰    JUNE 27    7PM

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 OneNight (UnaNoche)," 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.

By September 10, 2001, the frequent Total Request Live champions had reached the pinnacle of their career. That was the night the male-harmony group, which includes Jeff Timmons, Justin Jeffre and brothers Nick and Drew Lachey, performed in front of a sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden in New York City as part of the Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Celebration. A star-studded salute marking the icon’s three-decade run as a solo entertainer, it was the kind of achievement that should have taken 98° to the next level.

Over the past 15 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, and 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, Netflix’s Love is Blind). Drew was crowned season two winner of Dancing with the Stars, performed 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.
