One American boy band that has made ladies and women from all over the world shout and giggle every time they perform is the Backstreet Boys. Female music fans in Europe should feel lucky as this American boy group has just toured the continent.
Denmark’s capital of Copenhagen played host to The Backstreet Boys as they took part in the “Play to Stop – Europe for Climate” campaign that coincided with the opening of the United Nations Climate Change Conference. The campaign is aimed at raising awareness among the youth about the adverse effects of climate change and the things they can do to prevent it from worsening. The American boy band’s concert was made possible by the European Commission and MTV Networks International.
The Backstreet Boys is known for their upbeat hit songs “Get Down (You’re The One For Me), ” “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)” and “Everybody” among many others. And the men that make up this group is not only good at singing because they dance very well, too which what make them click with the female music fans worldwide.
The Backstreet Boys is made up of cousins Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell who both hail from Lexington, Kentucky as well as Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean, both from Orlando, Florida plus Nick Carter from New York. Kevin and Brian started singing as kids joining local church choirs and festivals while the three others – Howie, A.J. and Nick met each other when they auditioned for local commercials, television shows and theater. It was when Kevin Richardson moved to Orlando, Florida where he worked as a tour guide for Disney World that he met Howie, A.J. and Nick who were already performing as a trio then. What happened next is that the four formed a new group and invited Brian Littrell to make a quintet band. That was 15 years ago and yet, the boy group is still making waves everywhere they go today.
