  1. I’m am thankful for BSB because they have provided a constant source of happiness and support as I travel through on this journey called life.

    I became a BSB fan with my twin sister in 1997 after hearing “Quit Playing Games” on the radio. I was thankful we bonded over our crush on the cute blonde guy and their awesome harmonies. As I entered middle school, I was thankful for BSB being there to help me form a common bond with peers as I navigated my adolescent years.

    BSB’s Never Gone came out when I went to college and it was the first time I independently went on my own to things. Living away from home, their new record helped provide some sense of familiarity when I would get sad and miss home, and I was thankful I could rely on their music to make me happy. This was the first time that I really stepped out and traveled on my own, as the closest they came to me was 8 hours away on tour. I was thankful for their shows pushing my independence further, allowing me to start traveling the county by myself, all while providing the perfect soundtrack.

    When This Is Us came out, I was headed into pharmacy school, which had such rigorous demands. Having a new CD, and then a few months later, a new tour with NKOTBSB, provided me such great stress relief, as well as something to look forward to after completing a challenging classroom year. At the end of my curriculum, In a World Like This Came out, along with the tour. I spent the summer traveling to several shows and I was thankful for the much needed distraction they provided me as I studied to pass my pharmacy boards.

    Shortly after pharmacy school ended, I ended a nearly decade long relationship with my boyfriend. As a newly single woman, I sought relief in my music. Their music was something constant in my life up until this point and I was thankful their music helped remind me there will be another guy out there who will never break my heart.

    As life continued to deal me challenges, I lost my father to cancer in 2015. It was absolutely devastating to me. One thing that helped with my healing was listening to the song, “Never Gone.” My father had always taken me to my BSB shows growing up and I was so thankful to have these wonderful memories with him, but I was also eternally grateful to have such a beautiful song written by BSB to sum up my feelings. The 2016 European cruise was one year to the date after my father’s death. I debated whether to attend as I knew it would be such a sad time for me, but I truly believe music heals, and I was super thankful I was able to experience the cruise during this difficult time to provide me some sort of happiness.

    Lastly, I have met some of my closest friends through BSB. Starting a decade ago, we all used to frequent the fan club chat. We would chat every day and it progressed to the point where we would attend concerts together. We eventually booked the 2013 cruise and have been traveling the world together since. I’m most thankful for BSB bringing these individuals into my life as they have shared my love for the music, but also been there for me through life’s toughest times - working through grad school, a huge breakup, and my father’s death.

    Thank you, BSB for all you have done for me. It means the world to me!

  3. We feel so blessed to have the boys in our lives. For the past 25 years they have provided us with great memories and inspired us. Together they have given us wisdom in their documentary, music, books, and life experiences. Kevin has taught us to come from a place of love and respect and not a place of anger. Brian has taught us how to overcome obstacles like vocal tension dysphonia and not take life too seriously. Why not make silly faces in the camera? Howie shows loyalty to the friends that need it most. Nick has taught us that you can set goals and achieve dreams no matter how hopeless it seems. And last, AJ has taught everyone to embrace different identities to be his most true self. We are grateful to dance, laugh, sing with the boys. Whether it is in the Instagram stories, 1990s videos, meet/greets, Chateau after parties, Vegas, or a local tour, the Backstreet Boys bring us joy. We are grateful to continue not only to enjoy past memories but create new memories as well.

  4. I am thankful for Backstreet Boys because their music is pure. They have At least one song for every type of problem I have ever faced (both good and bad). They are also a group of super successful celebrities that have never let their lives go down the drain and they are all their for each other when Someone is going through something. They are a family in every sence of the word. Their are not just hot, talented, celebrities, but also role models for all their fans and others.

  5. I'm thankful for BSB because they came into my life at a time when I felt a lot of despair and depression earlier this year, and they brought me joy, enthusiasm, a certain degree of levity and passion. Thanks to them, I was able to travel to Las Vegas and I also took the opportunity to visit Los Angeles and the Grand Canyon. Next year, I will be visiting several European countries to follow them on their DNA World Tour. I have just turned 28 and I'm so glad to have them in my life, think of them, dream of them, and that they accompany me day after day. I am single and I live on my own, but I feel like I'm not alone anymore. Thank u, best <3 I'm so f*ckin' grateful for Backstreet!

  6. I’m thankful for Backstreet Boys because from the beginning of the band, I have a great relationship with my mother. My mother is like my best friend. We’ve talked about all the moments thru the years of the band. We saw them two times in our city and for third time next year. I’m so happy loving this band and so proud of them that they are still together so many years. They are a big family. Thanks for all this years and for the all good memories! Keep The BackStreet Pride Alive!

  7. Ich bin dankbar bezaubernde Menschen kennengelernt zu haben und sehr froh das diese großartigen Momente mir immer in Erinnerung bleiben werden!

  8. I am thankful for BSB because their talents have inspired me over the years and have reminded me to keep fighting and to never give up. For 25 years I have followed them and their music and they have always been so real and genuine, it makes me very proud to be a BSB fan!! No matter where life takes you or what happens, there are always songs that take you back to a time or place, and for me BSB will always be my #1 go to when I need to feel good and loved. Thank you BSB for everything you do for your fans!!

  9. I am Thankful for BSB because they are the most genuine, Loving and Caring People not just
