7. Name that Singing Group;
Irresistibly cute, spunky and young, this Latino pop group had one rule- when you reached age sixteen, you retired to be replaced by a fresh thirteen-year-old. Though they never really caught on with the Anglo kids, they did spawn a rash of other boy-bands; DeBarge, New Edition, New Kids on the Block, to name a few.......of the original six members, one became reasonably famous; that would be Ricky "Living la Vida Loca" Martin.
