Aaron Carter Benefit Concert to Raise Mental Health Awareness
Former Dancing with the Stars contestant Aaron Carter’s family and friends are coming together to put on a benefit concert in the late singer’s honor following his death last month at age 34. The concert will be co-hosted by Carter’s twin sister Angel Conrad, and his older brother Nick Carter will perform.
Aaron Carter Benefit Concert to Take Place in January
On Wednesday, Angel Conrad (née Carter) took to Instagram to mark her and Carter’s 35th birthday. She opened up about the “extreme grief” she’s felt over the loss of her twin brother, sharing that she spoke with him just two days before his death and “begged, once again, for him to let us help.”
“And now, I sit here on our birthday, trying to navigate this unimaginable loss because of untreated mental illness and the addiction that it led to,” Conrad wrote, adding, “I feel a calling and responsibility to help other families and continue the conversation to further break the stigmas that surround mental illness.”
On January 18, Conrad will co-host a benefit concert in her brother’s honor called “Songs for Tomorrow.” One hundred percent of the proceeds from the concert will be donated to the children’s mental health organization On Our Sleeves.
*NSYNC’s Lance Bass will also co-host the concert. The event will feature a special performance from Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter. There will also be appearances from other members of the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, O-Town, and LFO, as well as Ryan Cabrera and B. Howard.
How to Get Tickets to the Benefit Concert
On Thursday, Nick Carter posted about the concert on his own Instagram, writing, “As we still mourn the loss of our brother, my sister and I turn our focus to what we can do to try to make a difference and raise awareness.”
He shared a link to more information about “Songs for Tomorrow,” which will be held at the nightclub HEART WeHo in West Hollywood beginning at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, January 18, with the doors opening at 7:30 p.m.
