High-pitched cheers pierced the air in Liberty University’s Vines Center throughout Convocation on Wednesday as Backstreet Boys member Brian Littrell and his family talked about how their faith influences their lives.

But the highlight of the event — and the point at which the decibels reached their peak — was at the conclusion, as Littrell joined the Liberty Worship Collective in singing a medley of his boy band’s greatest hits, including “Everybody,” “Larger Than Life,” “As Long As You Love Me” (joined by his son, Baylee), and “I Want It That Way,” the top single off of the ninth-best selling album in history. Students crowded the front of the stage to sing along, many screaming at the top of their lungs, and were rewarded as Littrell hopped down to join them, shaking hands, signing autographs, and giving hugs all while singing.

At one time, the Backstreet Boys were the most popular pop group in the world. They are the first group to sell 1 million CDs in a week and have sold over 140 million albums to date, reaching multi-platinum status.

On his own, Littrell released a contemporary Christian album, “Welcome Home,” in 2006.


Littrell, along with his wife, Leighanne, and teenage son, Baylee, answered questions on stage in an interview with David Nasser, Liberty’s senior vice president for Spiritual Development.

The singer/songwriter talked about how he remains strong in his faith throughout worldwide fame.

“It is what you make of it,” Littrell said. “A lot of people in the world, they make a big glitz and glamor about it. Me, I’ve always known who I was as a person going into the business and that is the person that I am going to be coming out of the business, if I ever stop.

“You can easily put yourself in the wrong position. My wife always tells me, ‘You are your environment.’ If you put yourself in those scary situations, things can happen. And for me, my faith was the foundation; it was a template, it was something that was always on my mind no matter what I did.”

Baylee has been interviewed for JustJared.com !

Brian Littrell and his wife Leighanne pose with their son Baylee Littrell at the opening night of the musical Disaster! on Broadway on Tuesday (March 8) in New York City.

The 13-year-old son of the Backstreet Boys singer is making his Broadway debut in the musical playing the dual roles of twins Ben and Lisa. The show takes place on a cruise ship casino on the evening of a major disaster in the Big Apple and spoofs classic disaster movies while using a catalogue of ’70s music.

“Ben and Lisa are identical twins and have very different personalities,” Baylee told JustJared.com in an exclusive interview. “Lisa is bubbly and bright, and is definitely the singer out of the two, but she doesn’t know a lot about the world. Ben can be more helpful than Lisa, but he’s not as outgoing as her.”

Baylee also opened up to us about what it was like growing up in the entertainment industry as Brian‘s son and how his parents inspired him to become a performer.

Brian Littrell’s 13-year-old son is all grown up and headed to the Great White Way. Baylee is following in his dad’s musical footsteps and is set to make his Broadway debut in Disaster! when it opens in New York on March 8.

“When I think about it, I accomplished something that not a lot of people get to achieve in their life,” the teen told the Associated Press. “I’m still a little shocked. It still hasn’t come out of my mind yet.”

Talk about some seriously talented genes. Back in the day, the boy bander’s son used to come up on stage and sing from time to time on his tours. “He’s way better than both of us put together,” Baylee’s mom, Leighanne Wallace, told the AP.

But Baylee’s parents, who met on the set of the music video for “As Long As You Love Me,” weren’t eager to force their kid into showbiz. “We’re not those parents to push him in any direction. We’re just supportive and loving in whatever he wants to do,” Brian said. “He could be a trash man or a schoolteacher, it doesn’t matter. We’re here to love him.”

Baylee Littrell, son of Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell, is in “Disaster” at the Nederlander Theatre.

Baylee Littrell was 9 when he started opening arena shows around the world.

OK, it helped that his dad, Brian, was a member of the headlining band — Backstreet Boys.

“Baylee would do two songs,” his mom, Leighanne, tells The Post. “He would ride his scooter to the stage, sing, scoot out and go play basketball. It was totally normal for him: It’s just the way he grew up.”

Now 13, Baylee’s facing smaller crowds, but they’re no less daunting: He’s making his Broadway debut playing twins Ben and Lisa in “Disaster!” — a spoof of ’70s disaster movies set to such period hits as “Hot Stuff” and “Three Times a Lady.”

Asked by his father whether it’s hard to handle two different roles, Baylee replies, “Oh yeah. It is completely the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life.”

NEW YORK (AP) —

A young actor from Atlanta is making his Broadway debut this season. He’s only 13 and he’s never acted professionally before. But don’t worry — he’s got it in his DNA.

“Disaster!” star Baylee Littrell is the son of model and actress Leighanne Littrell and Brian Littrell, a member of the Backstreet Boys. “He’s way better than both of us put together,” said his proud mom. “Like way better.”

Baylee likes baseball, grooves to The Temptations, admires Carol Burnett, cries on the couch watching girly movies with his mom and is studying the Jazz Age with his tutor. He grew up on the road — his crib was on the Backstreet Boys bus — and he has a knack for connecting with older people.

“I always was a little more sharper in some ways,” he said in a joint interview with his parents. “I was always like a little too mature to hang out with other kids.”

Fitting for a young man with plenty of goofy voices and an ear for mimicry, Baylee actually plays two characters in the show, a spoof of 1970s disaster movies. He plays the always-battling twins Ben and Lisa. (For Lisa, he dons a wig and sings in a higher octave.)

He sings a clutch of songs, including “25 or 6 to 4” and “Ben,” popularized by a young Michael Jackson. “This show is nothing like a Broadway show,” he said. “It’s funny and a lot of Broadway shows are dead serious.”

That he would end up in show business one day might have been predicted from the way he lit up watching his dad sing and dance in front of thousands.

When he was 4, the band’s manager brought him onstage for the encore. “He was running and waving and everyone’s like ‘Baylee! Baylee!'” said his father. Baylee didn’t want it to end: “He’d cry and pitch a fit. Like, ‘Where’s everybody going?'”

The kick-off to Tuesday’s Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris finale was larger than life with the addition of the Backstreet Boys, minus Nick Carter — he’s been busy lacing up his dancing shoes for ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.

But the show must go on, and luckily, host Neil Patrick Harris was prepared to take the stage with the rest of the band – Kevin Richardson, A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, and Howie Dorough – for the “Sing-along Live” segment.

Singing the band’s hit “I Want It That Way,” Harris kept step with BSB as they glided across the stage, and even guest announcer Kelsey Grammer couldn’t help but sing (and snap) along.

Lexington, Kentucky (WYMT)The stars were out tonight in Lexington as more than one dozen musicians from Kentucky were inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Halfway to Hazard brought the crowd to its feet to begin the ceremony, then Chad Warrix and David Tolliver received the Hall Of Fame’s Humanitarian Award for their fundraising efforts to help their native Eastern Kentucky.

Warrix & Tolliver said, “To be in this company with all these people around us is unreal. It’s an honor. Very humbling. Clarence Spalding, one of the biggest managers, Larry Cordle, Montgomery Gentry who has been a huge influence on us. These names are just always huge at this event”.

Lawrence County native Larry Cordle entered the Hall of Fame after a career as a country singer and songwriter that has spanned 40 years.

“I was just working and really wanted to be in the music industry. You don’t think about being honored in this fashion. I wanted to do good. I wanted to do as good as I possibly could,” Cordle mentioned.

Also entering the Hall, Country duo Montgomery Gentry.

Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry responded, “It’s just unbelievable. It’s something you dream of growing up. In Kentucky, you have all the music, the bluegrass, the country, the rock, everything. And if you look at all the inductees that says it all right there”.

And Backstreet’s back! Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys are now immortalized in the Hall of Fame.

“The heritage of Kentucky music to be a part of that family with so many great people that have come before us. Loretta Lynn, Ricky Skaggs, Rosemary Clooney, I mean the list goes on. It’s an honor,” Richardson said.

An honor that ensures the accomplishments of these musicians will be remembered for a long time.

Also entering the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame Friday night were folk singer Doc Hopkins, manager Clarence Spalding, comedian and singer Pete Stamper, and R&B group The Moonglows.

“There’s no place like home,” Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson said.

Country duo – Halfway to Hazard, received a humanitarian award Friday for raising more than one million dollars towards Eastern Kentucky concerns.

“Kentucky is such a rich history of talent and artists and writers and singers and wow,” Halfway to Hazard’s Chad Warrix said.
