Last night, 1778 Events along with Ciroc French Vanilla hosted a star-studded 50th birthday celebration for New Edition legend Ronnie DeVoe. Hundreds of fans and industry friends packed the all-new REVEL in West Midtown Atlanta to wish “Big Ron” a happy birthday. DeVoe’s wife Shamari Fears-DeVoe, his mother Flo DeVoe and fellow Bell Biv DeVoe partners Michael Bivins and Ricky Bell attended the exclusive affair, which included a VIP Meet & Greet in the Ciroc Experience Room and surprise performances by 112, Damion Hall, Kelly Price and Cherrelle.
Of course, BBD took the stage for a mini concert of hits such as “N.E. Heartbreak,” “When Will I See You Smile Again” and the forever classic “Poison.”
Additional attendees included Big Tigger (V103 on-air host), Tichina Arnold, Stevie J, Hiriam Hicks, Trina Braxton, Egypt Sherrod (HGTV), DJ Fadelf, Headkrack (Dish Nation/Rickey Smiley Morning Show), Kiana Dancie (co-host, “Sister Circle Live”), Gocha Hawkins, Sabrina Rowe, Sharlinda Parker, Shanti Das, Donald Woodard (USA Track & Field), Rennie Curran (former NFL athlete), Teresa Caldwell, Sheri Riley (author and motivational speaker), Vanessa Fraction (comedian), Kore Stacks and DJ E-Clazz on the turntables.
