According to TMZ, Nick broke down in tears during his Sunday performance with the Backstreet Boys at the O2 Arena in London.
Aaron was found dead in his L.A. home Saturday after police received a 911 call of a man who drowned in a bathtub.
Aaron’s twin sister, Angel Carter, also wrote a tribute to her brother on Instagram.
The Backstreet Boys performed Sunday in London and paid tribute to Aaron during the show. In videos shared on social media, Backstreet Boys member Kevin Richardson dedicated their 2019s ingle, “No Place,” to Aaron, saying song was “very special to us because that song is about family.” “Everybody in here, we all grew up together,” he told the crowd.
Most emotional moment of the Backstreet Boys concert so far. They made a speech about Aaron Carter.

“We’ve been through highs and lows and ups and downs — we thank you for being with the Backstreet family for 29 years, for all the love,” Richardson continued. “Tonight we’ve got a little bit of heavy hearts because we lost one of our family members yesterday. We just wanted to find a moment in our show to recognize him.”
