BACKSTREET BOY VISITS SURVIVORS FROM LAS VEGAS AND DONATES BLOOD
Backstreet boys star, Nick Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt-Carter, went to UMC trauma center in Clark County, Nevada on October 7th. Their visit was following the Las Vegas tragedy that took place during the Harvest Country Music Festival on October 1st. Carter arrived to UMC to donate blood, then he took the time to meet with the staff and visit with the patients.
After Nick made his blood donation he graciously took time to pose with the overwhelmed and over tired staff and even visited with the survivors; he sat with them, listened to their stories. In that moment he was their friend.
One patient's story, Vivek (who's twitter bio states "Any pizza is a personal pizza if you believe") touched Nick so deeply that he publicly tweeted their meeting.
Following the tragedy Nick and the rest of the Backstreet Boys were vocal with their condolences and sharing their heart felt wishes toward the survivors and the friends and families of those who lost their lives.
The band as a whole also donated $10,000 to the GoFundme.com page accepting donations to help with the recovery effort for all of those involved.
Nick Carter and his wife Lauren, who married on April 12, 2014, decided to relocate with their one year old son, Odin, to Las Vegas preempting the start of the Backstreet Boys Larger than Life residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort. The band will return the Axis this November with shows occurring through February 2018. "Larger than Life" was the fast selling performance residency in Las Vegas history. Nick and the rest of the Backstreet Boys are currently recording a new studio album that will be followed with a new world tour.
