Mini Biography
Nickolas Gene Carter was born on January 28, 1980 in Jamestown, New York, to Jane Elizabeth (Spaulding) and Robert Gene Carter. As a child, he appeared in several television commercials, and, in 1989, auditioned for The All New Mickey Mouse Club (1989) (aka "The Mickey Mouse Club"). However, his main interest was music and his mother encouraged this by paying for singing lessons. His career took off in 1992 when he successfully auditioned to become one of the Backstreet Boys.

Nick had previously come into contact with two other members of the band, A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough, through other auditions, and the remaining band members, Kevin Scott Richardson and Brian Littrell, joined the group shortly, afterwards. Their first single, "We've Got it Going On", was released in 1995.

More recently, Nick's team of racing boats, "Nick Carter Racing", won its category in the OS Worlds in Daytona, Florida. His first solo album was "Now Or Never", released in March 2002 and his first solo single, "Help Me", was taken from the album. His younger brother, Aaron Carter, born in 1987, also has a successful singing career.
