Aha Moments and Life Lessons From the New Edition Family Tree

I'm an NE 4 Lifer, but I didn't show up to the party until 1985 or 86. Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph, and Johnny of New Edition are The Temptations, The Jacksons, and The Beatles of my generation. Period, full stop don't argue with me about this. They provided the soundtrack of our lives. We sang each hit and tried, some unsuccessfully, to recreate their intricate choreography. We've gone from wanting to be Candy Girls to playing Can You Stand the Rain at our weddings, to playing I'm Still In Love With You at our anniversary parties/vowel renewals to yes, playing Is This The End at divorce parties. Don’t even get me started on that madness, but yes divorce parties are a real thing.

Donnie Simpson’s 40th Anniversary celebration recap

I glanced at my uncle to tell him not to take me to freshman orientation and then I heard the melody of the Commodores' Jesus is Love playing on the radio followed by Donnie Simpson's velvet smooth voice. From BET's Video Soul to WPGC 95.5 to Majic 102.3 for the last 40 years, the soul of DC has been Donnie Simpson. In many ways, Simpson is as ingrained into the fabric of Washington as the old velvet paintings of Dr. King and the Last Supper's our grandmothers had hanging in the living room. For a few hours last Sunday Simpson's fan, friends, and family came together to celebrate one of Washington D.C.'s icons.
