At a young age, pop singer Aaron Carter was surrounded by music which quickly turned into a fruitful career.

Carter made his first solo appearance in 1997, opening for his big brother’s band the Backstreet Boys. Months later, Carter was signed to a label and released his first single, “Crush On You.” The single would follow with a self-titled debut album that quickly achieved gold record status in multiple countries.

Three years later, Carter went on to release “Aaron’s Party,” which went triple platinum and sold more than three million copies. This would make up only a small portion of Carter’s success.

It is no surprise that Carter’s next release “Oh Aaron” (2001) went platinum, followed by the double platinum “Another Earthquake” released in 2002.

I vividly remember sitting front row to see Carter perform at The Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, Conn. and hearing all of his hit singles: “Aaron’s Party,” “That’s How I Beat Shaq” and “I’m All About You.” And let’s not forget everyone’s all-time favorite, “I Want Candy.”

In the years to come, Carter would develop a hearty laundry list of awards including Teen Choice Awards, Radio Disney Music Award and Kids Choice Awards. Likewise, Carter has performed in front of millions of fans at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and The Billboard Music Awards. In addition, Carter has earned a unique spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest singer to have four consecutive top 10 singles in the U.K.

In 2013, Carter kicked off the “After Party Tour,” which grew from 80 shows across North America to over 150 performances, marking his first tour in eight years.

“Music is not stable like other types of jobs and it comes in waves,” said Carter.

“Low points” in this cycle are countered with the many achievements, hit-singles and tours in Carter’s career.

“You have got to find your inspiration because it allows you to feel good,” said Carter.

“Don’t let downs sidetrack you. Keep at it and pursue it really hard. I know I’m never going to stop,” added Carter.

On Wednesday, Feb. 11, Carter will be performing at Fairfield Theatre Company’s StageOne, located right across from the Fairfield train station.

Not only will Carter be performing older hits, but also will be performing new material from his upcoming release.

Following Carters performance there will be a VIP Meet and Greet for those who purchase VIP tickets which includes a picture with Aaron and a signed 8×10, just to name a few. For more info about Aaron’s Meet and Greet, call the FTC box office at 203-259-1036.
