Leer en español: Aaron Carter: conoce su trayectoria musical
At only 34 years old, Aaron Carter left this world. He did it on November 5, 2022, under dubious circumstances. That is to say, the official report indicated that it was due to drowning, but until now there are no specific opinions, beyond the fact that it is possible that he was the victim of a dangerous fashion.
It was none other than the consumption of compressed air. According to those close to Aaron Carter, this singer had become addicted to inhaling these gases, which can kill neurons. The artist was even undergoing treatment to avoid this consumption. But obviously, he couldn't get over it.
Now, this unfortunate death makes us review his career, which had enormous fame in pop music. The reason? Well, he was the brother of one of the members of the Backstreet Boys, one of the most important musical groups of this millennium, since it was active from 1997 to 2002.
Aaron Carter's career: what you should know
Well, Aaron was born in Florida. Since childhood, he has already shown interest in music. And it is something that he was able to achieve as a singer since he began to become popular in the genre of hip-hop and romantic ballads. In addition, he learned to play some instruments, such as guitar, saxophone, and piano.
For this reason, since he was 7 years old, he started with Dead End, a local band. As a solo artist, she began in 1997, with a cover of The Jets. By 1996, he had already put together a charity EP, titled "Let The Music Heal Your Soul". There the participation of the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, and other artists.
In this sense, by 1997 he had already obtained his first gold record in Norway, Spain, Germany, Denmark, and Canada. But the reality is that, over the years, he managed to make different albums with greater or lesser success. Next, we will present what they have all been:
- Let The Music Heal Your Soul – 1996.
- Aaron Carter- 1997.
- Surfin' USA – 1999.
- Aaron's Party (Come Get It) - 2000.
- Aaron's Party: The Videos – 2000.
- Aaron's Party: Live In Concert – 2001.
- Oh Aaron – 2001.
- Oh Aaron: Live In Concert – 2002.
- Another Earthquake-2002.
- Most Requested Hits – 2003.
- Come Get It: The Very Best of Aaron Carter – 2006.
- 2 Good 2 B True – 2006.
In his personal life, he also had a notoriety for being with internationally recognized celebrities. For example, he was with Amanda Bynes, Hilary Duff, and Lindsay Lohan. With the latter, he had really conflictive relationships, which generated many controversies in the media.
Although he excelled in the realm of pop and hip-hop, Aaron Carter was also making inroads into his acting career. For example, he was in series like "Lizzie McGuire", "Sabrina: the teenage witch" or "7th Heaven". He was also in movies like "Fat Albert" or "Popstar". And he was even on "House of Carters", his own reality show!
However, it was more than clear that his forte was his musical career. Although he had not released a CD since 2018, every time he played a show he generated the interest of the public, who found his music "innovative" since it had changed the way pop and hip-hop were defined.
Well, it should be mentioned that the Backstreet Boys decided to pay an emotional tribute after his death. Aaron's brother Nick Carter wept during a performance of Breathe, which was played in London to commemorate Aaron's artistic career.
Unfortunately, not only was a great singer gone, but a multifaceted and talented artist. Rest in peace.
