"In only its first year, Live Nation and the Met have raised and made this significant donation as the result of on-going efforts and a commitment to giving back to the community," Live Nation said in a statement.

Boyz II Men attended the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts earlier in the day prior to performing a sold-out show at the Met.

It was their second concert at the Met since the venue opened in December 2018.
