Lance Bass, Angel Conrad Team For Charity Concert Following Aaron Carter’s Death
Conrad posted a long Instagram message on Wednesday about her birthday. She expressed her sorrow at losing her twin brother, and recalled the last time she spoke with him.
“Almost 11 years ago, I lost my sister, Leslie. I can remember feeling confused and broken. I wondered how I would continue my life without Leslie. Aaron, my beloved twin, is the victim. Conrad wrote that they had an indescribable connection… and now… it is him gone.”
She continued, “It feels unfair… I feel too young for the weight of losing my siblings.” I was shocked and blindsided when Leslie died. Aaron, however, had tried everything .”
Conrad claims she spoke with Carter just two days before his death, noting that it was the last time she would see him. She explained that Carter begged her to help him.
Conrad wrote in the long post, “And now, i sit here on our Birthday, trying to navigate the unimaginable loss due to untreated mental illness, and the addiction it led to,”
The Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) singer died on Nov. 5. He was 35. At the time, a representative from his management team confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Carter was found dead in his California home. There has been no cause of death.
“I have loved him [Carter] from the moment we were born. It feels like a part of my soul has been lost. Yet, despite all the pain, his passing has lit an inner fire in me. Conrad said that he feels a responsibility and a call to help other families as well as continue the conversation to break down stigmas surrounding mental illness.
The “Songs for Tomorrow” benefit concert is set for Jan. 18, 2023, in West Hollywood. Conrad stated that all proceeds will go to On Our Sleeves, which is a national movement to end stigmas surrounding children’s mental health.
Bass also posted on Wednesday his Instagram Story, saying that it was “going to be such an special event” and that it would be “amazing to be part of this.”
At the concert, there will be special performances and appearances by Nick Carter, members of the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, members of O-Town and LFO, Ryan Cabrera, B. Howard and more. Find more information on the charity concert here.
In November, Nick Carter also launched a mental health fund in his brother’s memory to benefit On Our Sleeves.
