While attending Boston University, Danny was invited by his friend Donnie Wahlberg to become part of a new boy band called New Kids on the Block. He joined the group and tried to balance his academics with the band’s commitments, but soon left school to pursue a music career full time. Eventually the band would become one of the most popular boy bands in the 80s and early 90s, touring across the globe and selling more than 70 million albums worldwide. Their first album release became triple platinum certified in the United States, and they continued to make hit songs. Their second album entitled “Hangin’ Tough” included songs such as “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever)”, and “You Got It (The Right Stuff)”. During the 1994 tour entitled “Face the Music”, band member Jonathan Knight left the band and this led to the disbandment of New Kids on the Block.

In 2008, the members of New Kids on the Block reunited and started recording a new album. They continue to make music and tour today. Wood’s net worth is steadily growing.
