Aaron Carter, Nick, and Angel Carter’s older brother passed away unexpectedly in November, so the siblings arranged a benefit concert in his memory. At the time, Aaron had already lived for 34 years.
Always prioritize the well-being of your family.
Aaron Carter’s twin sister Angel and bassist Lance Bass put on a benefit concert called Songs For Tomorrow on January 18th. It had been about two months since Aaron’s passing. At a benefit concert for the children’s mental health group On Our Sleeves, numerous well-known performers from the late 1990s and early 2000s paid tribute to the “I Want Candy” singer.
Aaron Carter’s brother Nick (of the Backstreet Boys) and Aaron’s longtime pianist Stan Jones performed acoustic versions of “Shape of My Heart” and “I Want It That Way.”
His new song “Hurts to Love You,” dedicated to his brother who passed away, also has a music video. Further, Aaron’s unreleased song “Recovery” was performed by a three-piece band. Some old home movies from when he and Nick were young were also shown.
Besides David Archuleta, the night also featured performances from LFO’s Brad Fischetti, Ryan Cabrera, and B. Howard.
Aaron’s favorite song is John Lennon’s “Imagine,” so that’s what they ended the show with.
After Aaron’s sudden fame in the late 1990s, his death was found in his California home in November. He was 34. Nobody seems to have any idea what led to his death.
He has been forthright about his battles with addiction and his exes, Angel and Nick, who have both filed for restraining orders against him this year. Nick testified that Aaron acknowledged to him that he had considered murdering Nick’s then-wife Lauren Kitt Carter and their unborn child, while Angel testified that Aaron “threatened” them. For the record, Aaron insisted he hadn’t done anything illegal.
Nick reflected on the rocky nature of his relationship with Angel when he posted a condolence to him on Instagram in the days following her husband’s death. Despite everything that happened between him and his sister, he insisted that his love for her remained the same. One of my fondest wishes is that he will choose to enter a sober lifestyle.
Angel and her twin sister shared a 35th birthday on December 7th. She bemoaned on Instagram, “Aaron’s death was the darkest day of my life.” “Losing someone you’ve loved since they were born is a devastating experience. Although I’m in a lot of pain right now, his passing has given me renewed determination. As a result, I feel compelled to provide a hand to other families going through what we have, and I want to keep the conversation continuing to help end the stigma associated with mental illness.”
