It was boy band heaven for Aaron Carter fans wanting to honor their favorite pop star while raising money for charity at the same time … all thanks to an effort organized in part by Aaron’s older siblings, Nick spirit Angel Carter.
Nick, alongside his Backstreet Boy bandmate AJ McLeanNSYNC’s Lance Bass98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmonsmembers from O-Town and LFO all gathered at HEART in West Hollywood.
Not only did the guys perform some fan favorites, the tribute show also raised $150k for On Our Sleeves — a charity that works to help children facing mental and emotional health struggles — with a goal to give every community in America access to free , evidence-informed educational resources, educating families and breaking stigmas.
We’re told 100% of the proceeds raised at the show will benefit the charity.
