'N Sync Returns to Colorado
Recently 'N Sync returned to Colorado for a show. Their last show in the state
took place in the aftermath of the Columbine High School shooting. During that
visit, 'N Sync stopped by the hospital to spend some time with shootig victims.
When the guys returned last month, they invited the Columbine friends they
had made to the show. In an effort to decrease tragedies such as the
Columbine massacre, 'N Sync has joined forces with other celebrities as a part
of TeenCentral.Net. TeenCentral.Net is an innovative and individualized,
self-guided, problem- solving website for teens that offers information and
resources; real-life case studies about resolving crisis; interviews and stories
from other teens; advice from celebrities, sports figures and others whom
teens look up to; and an interactive section that allows visitors to share their
own stories and validate their concerns safely and anonymously.
Challenge For The Children is Success
'N Sync's Challenge for Children was a huge success. The Knights (including
Justin and Joey) won the game despite the Daze team getting a little help from
coach Kobe Bryant and Reggie Miller. The event raised an estimated $50,000
which will be divided among various local children's charities. 'N Sync plans to
funnel some of that money to relief aid in Turkey. The guys hope to make the
charity game an annual event.
Summer Music Mania '99
'N Sync owned the Summer Music Mania concert on Monday night. It was
obvious that the sold-out venue was packed with fans, who for the most part
were there to see 'n Sync fist and foremost. Surprisingly though, despite the
'N Sync hype produced by local radio and television stations, the boys only
performed three songs: Tearin' Up My Heart, I Drive Myself Crazy (with an a
cappella intro), and I Want You Back. The four hour concert presented by the
upcoming movie Drive Me Crazy starring Melissa Joan Hart will be aired as a
two hour concert special hosted by MTV's Bill Bellamy on UPN on August 31st.

have been working with top name producers such as Marx, Dianne Warren,
