A BSB Virtual Visit + Merch For A Good Cause
For now, the world is practicing social distancing, staying home when possible and doing what they can to stay well during the COVID-19 pandemic, but some things never change… and that’s the Backstreet Boys’ ability to connect with others, no matter what.
On Monday, the Backstreet Boys celebrated their 27th anniversary, with Nick Carter tweeting wishes for “many, many more”, AJ McLean posting a video thanking fans, Howie D. and Brian Littrell reflecting on how blessed they’ve been and continue to be.
While they weren’t able to physically be together to celebrate, Nick, Brian and AJ took a “virtual visit” to Ryan Seacrest Studios at Children’s National Hospital in D.C., where hospital staff (and some patients) surprised them with a BSB-themed flash mob! They also had a little fun talking about a possible new BSB member - watch here.
When asked what advice they have for patients, families and healthcare workers at this time, the Boys had nothing but kind words, stressing the importance of keeping up your strength and attitude and knowing you’re not alone. “We’re thinking about you all the time and we love you,” Nick added. Watch everything they had to say here.
Still in the spirit of giving back and staying safe at home, the Backstreet Boys have also added four new quarantine-friendly merch pieces to their online store, with a portion of the proceeds going to Crew Nation, a fund that supports live music crews currently out of the job. If you’re interested, act fast - these items are only available through midday on April 24th!
Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick also have something special going on in the BSB fan club. They’re opening up the floor and asking fans to submit questions for them here. Keep checking back because they’ll be answering some of them in coming weeks and you don’t want to miss out!
