He rose from modest beginnings to music stardom as the eldest member of N’Sync. He is now engaged to advertising representative Karly Skladany.
On October 17, 1971, Christopher Alan Kirkpatrick was born right into a life of poverty. After graduation, Kirkpatrick continued his instruction using a concentrate on the performing arts in Florida (at Rollins College and Valencia College). He found his way onto the stage within a doo wop group singing at Universal Studios. This resulted in an audition for the Backstreet Boys, but Kirkpatrick simply missed the cut. Anything but conquered, he made a decision to form his own ensemble together with the encouragement of Lou Pearlman, the guy who orchestrated the creation of the Backstreet Boys.
Kirkpatrick expanded an offer to Joey Fatone, a fellow Universal Studio performer, to join his upstart group, along with Justin Timberlake, whom he had met on the area audition circuit. Timberlake was linked with JC Chasez from the Mickey Mouse Club and encouraged him to join the group also. Last came Lance Bass, who had been urged by Timberlake’s vocal coach.
The five men churned out pop hits in Europe before America. Back home, their self-titled record was unimaginably successful, selling a million copies. After their 1999 Christmas record, N’Sync created the best selling record of 2000, No Strings Attached. The track “Bye Bye Bye” scored a Grammy nod also. One year after came the five-time platinum record Celebrity, before Kirkpatrick and his bandmates break for solo endeavors.
To remain relevant, Kirkpatrick appeared on CMT’s Gone Country, where celebs take a chance at singing country music. Plus, he was on VH1’s Mission Man Band, a show after the creation of an organization from already recognized ability. Now Kirkpatrick has settled into his new group, Nigels 11. No matter fame and fortune, Kirkpatrick hasn’t forgotten how his family fought in his youth. This prompted him to begin the Chris Kirkpatrick Foundation to aid underprivileged kids. Despite a lot of person endeavors, Kirkpatrick continues to be expecting for an N’Sync reunion one day.
