Produced on February 20, 1975, in Lexington, Kentucky, Brian Littrell joined the Backstreet Boys, among the greatest pop groups ever to reach the graphs, at age 18. The favorite boyband vocalist in addition has become a successful Christian music musician. Littrell is now married as well as a father, and after beating heart health problems and operation, runs a foundation to assist families with children facing heart-connected medical conditions.
On February 20, 1975, in Lexington, Kentucky, Harold Baker Littrell II and his wife Jackie added another baby son to their own family, Brian Thomas Littrell. Created using a congenital heart trouble, their younger son nearly died from an illness due to his diminished heart at age 5. He found comfort from his youth medical challenges through religion and singing, combining both in the church choir. Shortly, Littrell was performing in school plays and musicals, together with weddings. He meant to attend Cincinnati Bible College on a complete scholarship and develop into a music minister. But life had other plans.
In April of 1993, the high school pupil was surprisingly invited to audition to get a fresh pop group, the Backstreet Boys, by his cousin Kevin Richardson. A day later he was chosen as the quintet’s closing member alongside Richardson, Nick Carter, AJ McLean and Howie Dorough. After making their mark in Europe, the group unveiled their 1997 debut record stateside.
In 2006, he released his first Christian music record, Welcome Home.
Littrell’s crooning career directed him not only to recognition but to his future wife also. On September 2, 2002, they wed. A couple of years after they’d son Baylee. The glad Littrell nearly never made it to fatherhood: In 1997, he underwent open-heart surgery to repair a hole in his heart, and physicians discovered a concealed second one. Littrell said it was a wonder he lived. His 7-year old son suffered his own panic, getting the better of Kawasaki disease (an inflammation of the blood vessels) in 2008. Thankful for his family’s well-being, the pop star now runs Brian Littrell’s Healthy Heart Club for Kids, supplying info and support to families with kids arguing with heart conditions.
