"The Little Prince of Pop"
The musical career of Aaron Carter actually began when he was seven, when he landed the position of lead singer in a band
called Dead End. Since then, he set the world record for the most hit songs recorded by a person his age in music history! Aaron Carter and Dead End parted friends after about two years, with Aaron declaring "... they wanted to do alternative music and I wanted to do more pop." From that point forward, he was a solo act, and he began to spend much of his time in vocal training. It wasn't long before Aaron Carter was putting his voice lessons to work.
In March of 1997, Aaron performed during a
Backstreet Boys' concert in Berlin, Germany, and he stole the show! After the concert, he was offered a record contract on the spot by an Edel Record Company executive who saw him perform, and in the fall of 1997, he released his first single, "Crush On You." He followed that with "Crazy Little Party Girl," "I'm Gonna Miss You Forever" and "Shake It," all of which became very popular overseas.
After going gold in Norway, Spain, Denmark, Canada, and Germany, Aaron's first full album, "Aaron Carter," hit the stores in the US on June 16, 1998, and was a big success. Aaron released another single, "Surfin' USA," a remake of the
Beach Boys' famous song.
He also worked with such musical talents as The Moffatts,
Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, Gil Ofarim and others to make a single called "Let the Music Heal Your Soul." They called themselves the Bravo All Stars, and donated the time they spent in studio on the single and its proceeds to benefit the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Foundation, an organization that treats disabled and autistic children through the use of a specially designed kind of music therapy.
Aaron Carter also released a single on the 1999 Pokemon soundtrack. He performed his single "(Have Some) Fun With The Funk" on Nickelodeon during the 1999 Big Help Celebration. Thousands of fans in the audience and millions of television viewers got to see a great Airboy performance!
2000 was a breakthrough year. Aaron Carter released his smash album "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)," and a tremendously successful single and video of the same name. He opened for
Britney Spears on the U.S. leg of her 2000 world tour, and he was also the subject of a biography written by his Mom. Aaron Carter also moved back to Florida (to the Florida Keys) and made numerous hugely popular and successful appearances on Disney, Nickelodeon, Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, and
2001 was a smash hit! Aaron Carter garnered the Favorite Rising Star award at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. He also received rave reviews for his performances as Jojo the Who in the Broadway hit musical, "Seussical the Musical." His multi-platinum album peaked at number 4 on the Billboard charts, while he was also ranked at number 52 on Rolling Stone's Hot 100 Artists.
Has all the fame and fortune changed Aaron Carter? Naah. He's the same loveable kid he's always been. Asked what makes him the most happy, he responds gleefully "Making my fans and family happy, and having fun!" And he's doing a great job at all three!
