Angel Carter and Lance Bass to Hold Charity Concert to Honor Aaron

Angel Carter and Lance Bass are teaming up to honor her twin brother and late pop star Aaron Carter.


On Wednesday, in honor of her 35th birthday, Angel shared a lengthy message on Instagram detailing why Aaron’s death was “the worst day of my life” — and how she plans to take action.


“I want to start by sharing how much I appreciate all the birthday wishes. While today is incredibly tough, I am overwhelmed by your love and support… thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Angel began in her post, alongside a photo of herself and Aaron as kids.


“Almost 11 years ago, I lost my sister, Leslie. I remember feeling broken, confused, and I questioned how I was going to continue on without her in my life… And now, over a decade later, I am forced to once again deal with the extreme grief of the death of a sibling,” she added. “This time, it’s my beloved twin, Aaron. We had an indescribable bond… and now… he is gone.”





“It feels unfair… I feel too young to carry the weight of losing two of my siblings. When we lost Leslie, I was blindsided and shocked. With Aaron, however, we had tried everything. In fact, I spoke with him two days before he passed, and I begged, once again, for him to let us help. I did not know that would be the last time that I would ever hear his voice. And now, I sit here on our birthday, trying to navigate this unimaginable loss because of untreated mental illness and the addiction that it led to.”


“Aaron dying was the worst day of my life. I have loved him since we were born… it feels like a piece of my soul is gone. And yet, despite all this pain, his passing has lit a fire within me. I feel a calling and responsibility to help other families and continue the conversation to further break the stigmas that surround mental illness,” she added, before detailing the benefit concert happening in Aaron’s honor and in effort to “raise awareness about mental health.”


The “Songs for Tomorrow” charity concert will take place on Jan. 18, 2023 at Bass’ nightclub HEART in West Hollywood, California.


From the concert, 100% of proceeds will be donated to On Our Sleeves, an organization that aims to break stigmas around children’s mental health.


She concluded in her post, “I have learned the pain never goes away and keep telling myself that it is one step at a time. I am hoping you can join me for this crucial next step… in memory of Aaron.”


The concert will be hosted by Angel and Bass, 43, with special performances by brother Nick Carter, his band the Backstreet Boys, members of *NSYNC, members of O-Town and LFO, Ryan Cabrera, B. Howard and more special guests to be announced.

Aaron died on Nov. 5 at the age of 34. The singer-actor rose to fame in 1997 with his self-titled debut album, followed by Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) (2000), Oh Aaron (2001), Another Earthquake! (2002) and LØVË(2018).


Following his death, Nick and Angel also teamed up to launch a donation fund for the same organization, On Our Sleeves.


“Very grateful for the outpouring of love and support for my brother,” the Backstreet Boys member wrote in part on his Instagram Story about the fund’s creation.


Fans and supporters can make a monetary donation on the fund’s page, which features the message, “Thank you for choosing to celebrate the impact of the life of Aaron Carter with a gift of hope. By honoring Aaron, you help Nick, Angel, and their family’s commitment of helping others.”

DISTURBED’s JOHN MOYER: ‘We’re Always Gonna Be A Hard Rock, Heavy Metal Band That’s Angry’

DISTURBED bassist John Moyer spoke to the Danny Wimmer Presents show “Power Hour” about the band’s recently released eighth studio album, “Divisive”. The LP was recorded earlier this year with producer Drew Fulk (MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, LIL PEEP, HIGHLY SUSPECT) in Nashville, Tennessee.

“It’s really interesting ’cause the last album, as you recall, was [2018’s] ‘Evolution’,” he said. “And ‘Evolution’, almost half that record was kind of acoustic. We were really pushing ourselves to do something different, and we had some great tracks off that — ‘A Reason To Fight’, ‘Hold On To Memories’. And it’s great, because now our live show has these acoustic moments that go along with [our cover of SIMON & GARFUNKEL‘s] ‘The Sound Of Silence’. But at the end of the day, we’re always gonna be a hard rock, heavy metal band that’s angry. And so this record, it wasn’t even forced; it was, like, ‘This is where we’re at now. We did that. Let’s get back to our roots. Let’s get that heavy…’ I think David is sounding the best — David Draiman, our singer for DISTURBED — I think he’s never sounded better. He sounds incredibly powerful. Nothing is over-produced. It’s very visceral. His lyrics are just on fire.

“People talk about the fact that, like, ‘Oh, you guys have had some success. How can you still be angry?’ Just look around at the world, bro,” he continued. “There’s plenty to be angry about and talk about. And someone like David Draiman, he’s a really smart guy; he really stays informed.

“I say this a lot about DISTURBED. I think a lot of people get into DISTURBED because of the music. Dan’s [Donegan] a really heavy, powerful guitar player. No one really plays drums like Mikey [Wengren]. Mikey and Dan have this syncopation that they do together. And me, I’m just there laying as thick a bass as I can to support these guys. And I think that’s why people get into DISTURBED. But I think people stay because of the messages that David puts in those lyrics. And I think this new ‘Divisive’ record is filled with all kinds of powerful messages that our fans — and not just our fans, but even new fans — would really like.”

Donegan‘s divorce inspired the “Divisive” song “Don’t Tell Me”, which is a duet with HEART‘s Ann Wilson. In two decades, it breaks ground as the first-ever guest collaboration on a DISTURBED record.

According to Billboard, “Divisive” sold 26,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release, with 22,000 units via album sales.

On the all-format Billboard 200 chart, “Divisive” debuted at No. 13.

DISTURBED has had five No. 1s on the all-genre chart, beginning with “Believe” in 2002.

Draiman previously stated about the “Divisive” album title: “Partisan tribal warfare has become a part of our regular existence nowadays. It’s one big battle of the cliques. The whole idea of the record is to be a wakeup call for everyone. Our society has become addicted to outrage. Music is the best cure for what ails us though. If only everyone reached out and used it. There’s no better environment to forget about all of this shit than live music. We can be together and realize we have more in common than not. Recognize what’s happening and let’s make a change for the better.”

Donegan added: “Whatever it takes, we’ve got to pull it together. We’ve always tried to take negative topics and spin them in a positive light. From touring around the world, we’ve seen the power of music as the universal language to bring everyone together from all walks of life. We can still play songs to unite people, and it’s a pretty powerful feeling.”

Luke Bryan, Riley Green and Mitchell Tenpenny: It’s a 3fer at the Cajundome on Friday | Entertainment/Life

Country superstar Luke Bryan’s “Raised Up Right Tour” pulls into Louisiana this week, with shows Friday in Lafayette and Saturday in New Orleans, before a three-night stint in Vegas.

Country singer-songwriters Riley Green (“There Was This Girl”) and Mitchell Tenpenny (“Drunk Me”) are the supporting acts, preceded by DJ Rock.

Five-time Entertainer of the Year and Georgia native Bryan is one busy guy. During a two-week break in his “Raised” tour next month, he’ll be opening his 13th “Farm Tour.” For this one, Bryan’s crew sets up stages in the fields of local farmers across six states. Green, Jameson Rodgers, the Peach Pickers and Rock will be special guests.

Just last week, Bryan debuted the official music video for his current Top 15 single, “Country On,” on Facebook.

“Country On” honors and pays tribute to the everyday hard-working Americans who keep the country running, according to a news release from Capitol Records Nashville.   

The song begins:

“Hey, farmboy, keep droppin’ that plow

Bailin’ that hay, feedin’ them cows

From the rooster crow ’til another long day is gone

Country on

Hey big rig, keep clockin’ them miles

Pullin’ that horn, makin’ us smile

Rollin’ that load down the road all night long

Country on,”

and continues on to cover cowboys, barkeepers, firemen and soldiers.

And here’s a really new one: As of Thursday, Bryan is in the popcorn (his favorite snack) biz.

Grown on his farm, the singer has teamed up with farming machinery manufacturer Fendt for Fendt & Luke Bryan’s Boldly Grown Popcorn (bold butter and chart toppin’ churro flavors).

Once the limited supply of popcorn sells out, Frendt will donate $25,000 to the national Future Farmers of America organization.

Bryan will also be making a return appearance as host (with first-timer Peyton Manning) of the “56th annual Country Music Association Awards” Wednesday, Nov. 9. He’ll also be back to judge “American Idol’s” sixth season on ABC next spring, alongside partners in crime Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and host Ryan Seacrest.  

Bryan, 46, has amassed 29 No. 1 hits and has more Recording Industry Association of America certified digital singles than any other country artist with 68.5 million. His worldwide global streams are 18.9 billion, and he has sold nearly 13 million albums. His headline concert tours have played sold-out shows for 12 million fans inclusive of 36 stadium concerts, Farm Tours, Spring Break shows and seven sold-out “Crash My Playa” destination concert events. Bryan has also won more than 50 major music awards.

Jacksonville, Alabama, native Green, 33, followed 2018’s successful single “There Was This Girl,” with the album, “Different ‘Round Here,” in 2019. That same year, The Academy of Country Music named Green its New Male Artist of the Year.

Earlier this month, Nashville, Tennessee-born Tenpenny, also 33, released the track list for his upcoming “This Is The Heavy” album, releasing Friday, Sept. 16. His debut single, “Drunk Me,” was his breakout success in 2018.
