Music The 90s

Aaron Carter

Aaron Carter is a pop singer/child star who came to prominence in the late 90s. He is the younger brother of Back Street Boy Nick Carter who was a teen heartthrob at that time.

His first CD was a self titled album released in 1997 that went gold in Norway, Spain, Denmark, Canada, and Germany. It wasn’t until his second release, “Aaron’s Party,” that he gained traction as an icon in the United States.

Although he was in a band named Dead End from the ages of 7 to 9, Aaron’s main claim to stardom as a child was through association with his brother Nick. Using this connection he opened concerts for huge names like Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys. He parted ways with Dead End after they began pursuing more alternative styles of music.

Aaron Carter’s biggest hits came about in the early to mid 2000s with the singles Aaron’s Party (Come Get it), I Want Candy, How I Beat Shaq, and Bounce.

Aaron is also an accomplished actor of stage and screen, making his debut with a guest appearance on the Disney Channel show Lizzie McGuire. Perhaps his biggest acting project was an MTV reality show named “House of Carters” in 2006 where Aaron returned to live in the same house as his other four siblings.

In November, 2013 Aaron Carter filed for bankruptcy to ease the pressure of the 3.5 million dollars he owed in debt. He has revitalized his adult music career and is touring in early 2014.
