It's probably no
accident that Nick Carter was born in the same Jamestown, New York hospital
as the legendary actress/comedienne, Lucille Ball. A firecracker from
day one, you could regularly find "Little Nicky" dressed in nothing
but diapers, bustin' a move, on the dance floor of his father's Yankee
Rebel lounge. By fourth grade, after his family moved to Florida, Nick
landed the lead in Phantom of the Opera. He was also a featured vocalist
at Tampa Bay Buccaneer pre-game shows for two years. At age 12 he put
in a winning performance on the 1992 New Original Amateur Hour, and
did commercials for both the Money Store and the Florida State Lottery.
Nick was offered a gig with Disney, but decided to go with the Backstreet
Boys after that first night of harmonizing.
During off hours,
you can find Nick at home with his parents and four younger siblings.
The drum set in his room gets a heavy workout and he spends lots of
time jamming with two of his buds. Nick is a licensed scuba diver, enjoys
the family motorboat and fishing, and loves poetry and football.
