Backstreet Boys is Brian Littrell's first big showbiz gig. He spent his growing up years singing at his local church, and was frequently invited to perform at other regional churches, revivals and weddings. To balance out the picture, Brian immersed himself in popular music at school, and his fascination with artists such as Hammer and Boyz ll Men kept his ears firmly tuned to Top 40 and Urban radio stations. Brian enjoys his life and considers himself very lucky to be a member of the Backstreet Boys.
When it's time to take five from BSB, Brian sacks out on the
king-size waterbed he bought for $50 ("It was practically brand new"). He also participates in all kinds of sports, his favorite being basketball. His cut of choice on the Backstreet Boys debut? "Don't Leave Me," "cause the track and the words are just slammin!"
