Brian Littrell was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, and spent his childhood singing in the church choir. His earliest aspirations were to become a music minister, but that changed drastically when his cousin, Kevin Richardson, contacted him and invited him to come to Orlando, Florida to join a fledgling boy-band called the Backstreet Boys. The Backstreet Boys went on to staggering success, becoming the best-selling boy-band in music history, with record sales in excess of 130 million copies. Years later the band took a break for a few years, and in that time, Brian Littrell returned to his roots to embark on a solo career as a Christian musician. Welcome Home, Brian Littrell’s solo debut, was released in 2006 to critical acclaim and success. Littrell won a GMA Music Award for the single “In Christ Alone,” and three additional singles from the album, “Wish,” “Over My Head,” and “Welcome Home (You),” all landed on the Top Twenty on the United States Christian charts. The album has currently sold over 100,000 copies and charted on both the Billboard 200 and at number three on the Christian Charts. Brian continues to balance his commitment to the Backstreet Boys and his own solo career as a Christian musician.
