Backstreet's (Giving) Back!

Backstreet's (Giving) Back!

The Backstreet Boys might be hopping to different cities every other night, playing sold out arenas on the DNA World Tour, but that doesn’t mean they’re too busy to keep giving back. In fact, hitting so many tour stops has given them a larger number of opportunities to really make a difference. 


Following Nick’s visit with the children, parents and staff (and giving us a perfect Cookie Monster imitation) at Minnesota Children’s Hospital, he joined band mate Brian Littrell in Boston for a day at Seacrest Studios at Boston Children's. The pediatric patients were given an opportunity to ask the two Backstreet Boys a variety of questions, from motivation and inspiration to favorite flavor of chicken wings. You can watch some of their visit in Boston Children’s instagram story highlights under Seacrest Studios.


Heading South on tour, AJ McLean joined Nick and Brian in a visit to Songs for Kids Foundation in Atlanta. Songs For Kids is a foundation that give kids with illnesses, injuries, and special needs the opportunity to express themselves through music. With 3/5 of the band present and a lot of wonderful children, they recorded what might be the most special version of “I Want It That Way” to date. You can watch it here


...And that’s not all! The Backstreet Boys have now done what they do best and found a way to get fans involved in giving back while simultaneously rewarding a few lucky fans as well. By donating as little as $10 through Prizeo, fans will be entered to win a luau with the Backstreet Boys (and much more!) during their stop in Hawaii in November. The best part, though, is that all donations will go to benefit Coalition For The Homeless, the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless men, women and children in New York.


This all came about from watching the reaction to the subway singalong video that Joel Wertheimer posted. Joel took this viral magical moment to spotlight to an organization close to his heart - the Coalition for the Homeless. I started doing research on the organization and its mission statement resonated with me. I spoke to my bandmates and we really wanted to do something special for them and the city of New York. We’re so excited to be able to help bring awareness to the issue of homelessness around the world and hopeful that as a group we can affect change,” Nick wrote on his instagram following the launch of the campaign on Tuesday.  


While the grand prize for donating is a trip to Hawaii, there are other things that you can purchase with your donations as well, including everything from a BSB DNA exclusive tee to a personalized message from Carter himself (only one left at the time of this publication). Watch the video below to hear the details straight from the Boys themselves.


What are you waiting for? Start giving now! 


If you can’t donate - that’s okay too! Please consider sharing the campaign to spread the word and help fund this wonderful cause for the greater good.

    I love hearing about the charity works Nick and the boys are doing <3 :o) Aside from feeling good, the fact that you are able to make others feel good about themselves even for a little bit, goes a long way.

    Seeing the children filled with enthusiasm while singing, I've been pondering about it for quite a while now ever since the boys mentioned putting up a business like a bar. A bar would only entail a lot of headache and troubles. Why not put up a talent center instead catering to kids that can become future artists and musicians, dancers and all that? Wouldn't that be amazing?

    The way the boys have started their careers and that they are packed with talent, to be able to do that for others sounds the neatest way in sharing their talent.

    From fear of might losing our home, to knowing the boys are able to help those in need, makes me feel that we are not alone. Props up and always with much love, I love you Nico my Mr Sunshine Love, Lorelie <3 :o)

    ps Nick believed in himself when someone, Ma'am Sandy believed in him and saw in him how special Nick is <3 :o)

    I feel so proud of the boys when they do these things. And I’m also sure they do things that we don’t even know. They’re truly kind and grateful and they know how to use their “power” to help others.
    I’m proud especially of Nick, because he is so sensitive and he is very hands-on about charity. When he has his heart touched by something, he goes for it, he tries to understand what’s going on and he puts his soul on it. He is so inspiring! I hope we all could be a bit more like him!
