Brian Littrell Biography
Brian Thomas Littrell popularly known as Brian Littrell is an American singer, songwriter and actor, best known as a member of the Backstreet Boys. He was born on February 20, 1975 in Lexington, Kentucky, to Jackie and Harold Baker Littrell, Jr. He has an older brother Harold, and is a cousin of fellow Backstreet Boys member Kevin Richardson.
He first started to sing in the choir of Porter Memorial Baptist Church in Lexington, and later started singing in his high school choir and acting in the school production of Grease as Roger at Tates Creek High School. Besides school, he worked at Long John Silver’s while performing at weddings.
Music was always important to him, and he later planned on attending Cincinnati Bible College on a full scholarship to become a music minister. While a junior in high school, Littrell changed plans and accepted the offer to join what would become the Backstreet Boys. Kevin Richardson, his cousin, called Littrell ,while he was in his high school history class, to join the Backstreet Boys on April 19, 1993. Littrell flew over to Orlando the next day and officially joined the group.
The band became popular in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the United States in the late 1990s and the early 2000s. During this time they released four albums, Backstreet Boys, Backstreet’s Back, Millennium and Black & Blue followed by a greatest hits album, The Hits: Chapter One. After a three-year gap, they released their comeback album, Never Gone followed by Unbreakable, This is Us and In a World Like This.
In 1997, Littrell was instrumental in bringing a lawsuit against the group’s managers Lou Pearlman and Trans Continental claiming that Pearlman has not been truthful about the earnings made by the group. In the following year, McLean, Richardson and Dorough joined the lawsuit which eventually resulted in a number of settlements.
His first solo album, Welcome Home, was released on May 2, 2006, which, like the Backstreet Boys projects, is a Sony BMG release. Littrell was a winner of the 2006 GMA Dove Award for Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year for “In Christ Alone,” along with songwriters Don Koch and Shawn Craig. He later won three more Doves for collaboration projects; in 2008, Special Event Album of the Year for Glory Revealed (various artists) and the Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year for “By His Wounds”, from that album; and in 2010, Special Event Album of the Year for Glory Revealed II.
Littrell was born with a heart defect that brought him several times into the hospital with life-threatening conditions – for two months alone when he was 5 years of age because of a bacterial infection. An open heart surgery in 1998 closed the hole he had in his heart.
