Aaron Carter was found dead at his home on Saturday November 5 and his brother Nick Carter performed in London with the Backstreet Boys where his emotions were on full display.
As the band performed the song “No Place” during their appearance at the O2 Arena, images of Nick and Aaron appeared on the big screens. After the band finished their performance, Kevin Richardson took a moment to address the audience.
“It was the very last single from the ‘DNA’ album and that song is very special to us because it’s about family,” he said as the audience shouted their support for Nick.
Richardson continued to thank the audience and at one point AJ McLean approached Nick for a hug followed by Brian Littrell.
“Tonight we had a bit of a heavy heart because we lost a family member yesterday,” Richardson continued.
Nick was seen in the background wiping away tears and dedicated their next song to Aaron.
Nick had previously taken to Instagram to share a post dedicated to Aaron’s memory.
“My heart is broken. Even though my brother and I had a complicated relationship, my love for him never faded,” he shared. “I always held out hope that he would one day, somehow, follow a healthy path and eventually find the help he desperately needed. Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss but the truth is addiction and mental illness are the real bad guys here I’m gonna miss my brother more than anyone will ever know I love you Chizz Now you can finally have the peace you could never find here on earth… I love you little brother.
