Back Street Boys member, Nick Carter cried during a touching tribute to his brother, Aaron Carter, at a concert just one day after his brother’s death.
The band played “No Place” during a Sunday show in London as photos of Nick and his brother played behind them on a screen.
42-year-old, Nick Carter, was visibly emotional and was sobbing as his fellow bandmates hugged and comforted him.
Kevin Richardson spoke to the crowd before they began to sing their tribute saying, “Tonight we’ve got heavy hearts because we lost one of our family members yesterday, and we just wanted to find a moment in our show to recognize him. Nick’s little brother, Aaron Carter passed away yesterday.”
“He’s a part of our family,” Richardson, 51, concluded.
Dorough, 49, also spoke, saying, “We’d like to dedicate this song to our little brother, Aaron Carter. May he rest in heaven.”
Earlier that same day, Nick posted photos with Aaron via Instagram as he shared a statement with his followers.
“Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded,” the Grammy nominee captioned in the post.
“I have always held on to the hope that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed.”
Carter went on to say that “addiction and mental illness is the real villain” in his 34-year-old brother’s passing.
“Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss,” Nick wrote. “I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know.”
Aaron Carter was found dead in his California home on Saturday. He is survived by his son Prince, 11 months.
Carter’s rep confirmed the news to Page Six, saying, “Aaron worked very hard towards the end of his life in recovery, to be a good father and to make amends with his family.”
