True Colors, Shining Bright...Or Burning Out?
Teen pop singing sensation the Backstreet Boys, created by local master mind Louis J. Pearlman are receiving some heat today courtesy of Orlando press.
The "Boys", who were scheduled to perform at a local children's hospital in downtown Orlando yesterday (May 4) for some 150 youngsters stricken with terminal illnesses ranging from cancer to AIDS and their families, never showed up. "BSB" as they are affectionately refereed to by fans were unavailable for comment.
Their publicist Helen Verhien, released this statement...."Regretably, the 'Boys' were unable to fulfill this obligation due to a scheduling error. Kevin, Howie, AJ, Brian and Nick all send their deepest apologies." Not satisfied with this answer, one local newspaper reporter decided to look further into the situation. With some help from friends on the "inside", she was able to uncover the truth. What she uncovered was very disturbing.
Kate Mills, senior reporter of the 'Orlando Sun' discovered that three members of the Backstreet Boys were on vacation at a secluded resort in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Ms. Mills was able to reach the hotel room of Nick Carter, the most popular member of the group, when addressed with her concerns, his comment was this..."I don't have time for this", and then he hung up. Kate, who's own sister Deborah died of cancer when she was 11, decided to take matters into her own hands. Again, contacting some friends in the business, she was able to save the day. Mills was able to get hold of close friend Johnny Wright, manager of 'NSYNC who then contacted 'NSYNC themselves to tell them of the current days situation.
When 'NSYNC was told of the discouraging news, they agreed to help. Front man of the group, Justin Timberlake had this to say..."We as entertainers in this business are very upset. When you don't have the time, you MAKE the time. Our fans are what got us here and they are the ones who will go 'to bat' for you when no one else will, they are the ones who believe in you when you don't even believe in yourself. And to turn your backs on them is down right disgusting! God blessed each and every one of us with a special gift, and now it's time to give just a little bit of that back, to make him proud. We are very honored and privileged to perform day after day for our fans. And today hopefully we can right a wrong that has been done to them, by fellow entertainers. To all our fans, we love you and appreciate all of you. We can't wait to see you on tour soon! God Bless".
For only being a meek 19 years old, he sure does have class. NSYNC, who were putting the finishing touches on their upcoming world tour when contacted by Wright, took three hours out of their day to head down to the Orlando Children's Pediatric Unit Hospital in downtown Orlando to surprise the children who had thought they'd been forgotten. These fab five hotties from Orlando sure do know how to put on a show. They performed, a capella, 4 songs for the youngsters, the last of which was a very emotional "God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You". How appropriate. There was not a dry eye in the place.
Afterwards, Justin, JC, Lance, Chris and Joey signed autographs for all in attendance. They were the talk of the hospital, it took them almost an hour to exit the building, after all, they came last minute and with no security.
Kate Mills was able to get this comment from Chris Kirkpatrick, the oldest member of the group...."It was nothing, really, we are happy to do it. Just to see all the kids smiling was reward enough." Nicely said Chris, spoken like the true hero 'NSYNC are. Backstreet Boys, you should be taking notes.
