New Edition - Earth Angel (1986)

By 1986, New Edition was reduced to a quartet after kicking out bad boy Bobby Brown.  That didn't stop them from garnering another Top 40 hit with a remake of The Penguin's Earth Angel, which was featured in The Karate Kid Part II.  The song later inspired them to do an oldies tribute album.  For the video, Ralph, Ronnie, Ricky and Mike serenade a bunch of girls as they stand in line for a showing of The Karate Kid (1984) sequel.   

Earth Angel was filmed in Santa Monica, CA

Location: The Movie Theater
Address: 216 Santa Monica Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA

The Mayfair Theater was damaged in the Northridge earthquake and remained empty for almost twenty years.  The building was demolished but the facade luckily remains.
