Aaron Carter has already had a whirlwind of a career- becoming an international pop sensation at the age of 10 and going on to release several hit singles and multi-platinum albums as well as appearing in film, television and on Broadway.
Carter, now 30, began his career at the age of 7 singing lead for the band Dead End. Two years later in 1997 he made his first solo appearance when he opened for brother Nick Carter’s band, the Backstreet Boys, in Berlin, Germany. Within months Carter was signed to a record label and released his first hit single, “Crush On You,” followed by his first album, “Aaron Carter,” which was a 5x platinum album and achieved gold status in several countries around the world.
After signing with Jive Records the following year, Carter released his next album, “Aaron’s Party” in 2000, which was an instant success and went quadruple platinum selling more than 3 million copies. “Oh Aaron” was released in 2001, which went triple platinum, followed by another triple platinum album “Another Earthquake” in 2002. His collection album, “Most Requested Hits,” was released in 2003 and went double platinum, followed by another compilation album in 2006, “Come Get It: The Very Best of Aaron Carter.” In 2005 Aaron exhibits his creativity into his single “Saturday Night,” which he co-wrote and produced with Dakari and Aaron Assetta.
One of the top pop acts of his time, Carter regularly toured around the world performing for millions of adoring fans. His best-known singles include “I Want Candy,” “Aaron’s Party,” “That’s How I Beat Shaq,” “Oh Aaron” and “I’m All About You.” Carter was also the featured opening act for the world tour of Britney Spears. In 2013 Carter kicked-off the “After Party Tour,” his first tour in eight years, which was initially scheduled for 80 shows across North America but quickly grew to more than 150 dates after strong initial ticket sales.
A new generation of fans were introduced to Carter when he joined the cast of the hit ABC primetime series “Dancing With The Stars.” Carter and his partner, Karina Smirnoff, finished in fifth place in the competition.
Carter is in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest singer to have four consecutive top ten singles in the U.K. He has performed live around the world to crowds of more than 1 million fans, was a featured performer for the “Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Celebration” and has performed at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Billboard Music Awards, the People’s Choice Awards and the American Music Awards.
Fast forward to now, a serious flame sparked in Carter to evolve and grow as an artist, driving him to study different styles, vibes and genres and expand creatively.
The result of this journey can be heard in his single, “Fools Gold,” off his recent EP titled “LøVë’, which was released earlier this year.
Carter recently finished a successful North American tour performing songs he made famous during the past 15 years.
He is performing a few special UK shows this December in London, Manchester and Birmingham. Tickets are available now via: http://gigst.rs/AaronC
