Aaron Charles Carter (born December 7, 1987) is an American singer. He came to fame as a pop and hip hop singer in the late 1990s, establishing himself as a star among pre-teen and teenage audiences during the early-first decade of the 21st century with his four studio albums. Born in Tampa, Florida, Carter began performing at age seven and released his self-titled debut album in 1997. His second album Aaron's Party (Come Get It) (2000) sold 1.5 million copies in the United States, and Carter began making guest appearances on Nickelodeon and touring with the Backstreet Boys shortly after the record's release. Carter's next album, Oh Aaron, also went platinum, and the musician released his most recent studio album, Another Earthquake, in 2002, followed by his 2003 Most Requested Hits collection. He has since appeared on Dancing With the Stars, the Broadway play The Fantasticks, and made several one-off performances. In 2014, he announced that he would begin releasing new music, and began by releasing a single featuring rapper Pat SoLo, "Ooh Wee", which first became available as a free download with purchase on his web store, and is reportedly working on a new studio album, due to be released in late 2015.
