Mayor Walsh proclaims Sunday New Edition Day

BOSTON — Boston Mayor Marty Walsh proclaimed Sunday "New Edition" Day in honor of the new series premiering on BET.'

New Edition, a Boston-based 90s band, is featured in a new miniseries on BET called The New Edition Story. 

The shows chronicles the ups and downs of the music group from their beginnings in Boston to solo success. BET was in Boston Sunday for a screening of the show, which Walsh attended.

In December, FOX25 interviewed Bell Biv Devoe, half of the original group New Edition, about the three-part miniseries.

"It's good for our side of the city:  the Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan, because we've never seen anybody do it from the city," said Biv.

The first part of the "New Edition Story" airs Jan. 24 and their newest album will be released Jan. 27.
