Backstreet Boys members

sumber : wikipedia.org

Boy band manager Lou Pearlman was inspired by the success of the New Kids on the Block in the 1980s to create his own clean-cut band. After a series of auditions in 1992 and 1993, he recruited Nick Carter (at 12, the band’s youngest member), Howie Dorough, 19, and Alexander James McLean, 14. Following the departure of two members- Sam Licata (later performing as Phoenix Stone) and Charles Edwards – Kevin Richardson, 21, came aboard in March 1993. The group took its final shape on April 19, 1993, when Brian Littrell, cousin of Richardson, joined the group after a phone audition. Their first concert, on May 8, 1993, was performed for 3,000 teenagers at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida. Pearlman later booked them at grade-school assemblies and shopping malls, and assigned management duties to Johnny Wright, who had worked with New Kids on the Block.
