About Chris Kirkpatrick
In the beginning, when the Backstreet Boys were still in the process of forming, Kirkpatrick had not been aware of their auditions. Kirkpatrick grew interested in doing more than just a cappella after learning about the work that Lou Pearlman was doing with the Backstreet Boys. After finally meeting Chris Kirkpatrick and watching him perform in his doo-wop group, Lou Pearlman took an immediate interest in him.
As a result, Lou and Chris Kirkpatrick discussed the possibility of Chris Kirkpatrick forming a vocal group, which Pearlman promised to finance if Chris Kirkpatrick could find other young singers to join him. Chris Kirkpatrick was able to find other young singers to join him.
Kirkpatrick and his family were forced to move around quite a bit while they were growing up since they were poor and relied on aid. They were also sometimes homeless. As a direct consequence of this, he received an education from a wide variety of educational institutions and resided in a number of states, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, South Carolina, and California. At one point, he and his family were forced to spend the winter in a trailer that did not have any electricity and had a hole in the side of it; in order to prevent the snow from getting inside, his mother had to pile filthy laundry in front of the hole.
In 1994, Chris Kirkpatrick was working at Universal Studios and singing in a group called The Hollywood Hi-Tones, which was a throwback doo-wop group comprised of aspiring singers and actors. It was through a mutual friend that he had met in choir that he was able to make the acquaintance of Lou Pearlman (Charlie Edwards). Prior to leaving the group, Edwards had a brief stint as a member of the Backstreet Boys.
Kirkpatrick made the most of the opportunity to investigate and experiment with a wide variety of activities and individuals. Eventually, he persuaded Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez, both of whom had participated in the resurgence of the Mickey Mouse Club in the 1990s, to join him in becoming the core of the boy band NSYNC.
Over the course of the late 1990s and the early 2000s, Kirkpatrick sold more than seventy million records with the group. In numerous tracks, including “Thinking of You (I Drive Myself Crazy)” “Together Again” “I Thought She Knew” “Just Got Paid” and many songs from their Christmas album, he sang countertenor, soprano, and lead vocals. NSYNC was initially signed to Ariola Records in Germany, and their debut album, which was self-titled, was released in Europe in 1997 and internationally the following year. It has sold eleven million copies.
The Grammy Awards in 2003 marked the end of NSYNC’s professional performance career, however the band did reunite for a few songs at the MTV Video Music Awards to perform during Justin Timberlake’s acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard Award. NSYNC performed together again for the first time since their breakup in April 2019, although this time without Justin Timberlake. The show was part of Ariana Grande‘s headlining set at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Kirkpatrick established a clothing brand in 1999 under the name FuMan Skeeto. The collection was a hybrid of the urban and skater fashion trends that were popular at the time. His unisex apparel collection comprised more laid-back goods such as T-shirts, shorts, cut-off shirts, long-sleeved jerseys, and hats. These things were all designed to be worn casually. The members of Fuman Skeeto’s band were not the only people who benefited from Fuman Skeeto’s expertise in the fashion industry; the singer Britney Spears was one of his clients. Since 2002, the apparel brand has been discontinued.
Following the breakup of NSYNC, Chris Kirkpatrick began working on a variety of musical projects, one of which was Nigel’s 11, an alternative rock band for which he wrote songs and sang lead vocals (also written as Nigels 11 or Nigels11). 2009 marked the beginning of Nigel’s 11’s work on their album, and the band self-released their debut record, Clandestine Operation, the following year. The album contained five songs that were not previously released, and they were titled “Who Am I?,” “All The Way Around,” “Mr. Jealousy,” and “Get Out,” respectively. The lyrics of the songs on the Clandestine Operation album concentrate extensively on topics such as overcoming personal hardships and problems with one’s sense of identity.
After some time, Nigel’s 11 decided to stop performing together as a band because of the physical distance between them and the fact that Kirkpatrick was extremely busy at the time managing and producing music for other artists.
In 2007, Kirkpatrick accepted an offer to star in the reality show Mission Man Band alongside the late Rich Cronin of LFO, Bryan Abrams of Color Me Badd, and Jeff Timmons of 98°. Kirkpatrick also agreed to play the role of the show is host. The first episode of the show, which aired on August 7, 2007, was on a new group being formed by former members of boy bands from the 1990s. The show was hosted by Kirkpatrick at his residence in Orlando.
Up until 2010, Kirkpatrick did a good job of keeping his relationship status a secret. That was the year that he began dating Karlyn M. Skladany. Kirkpatrick popped the question to her in Capri, Italy, back in October of 2012. Their wedding took place on November 2, 2013, at the Loews Resort Hotel in Orlando, Florida. All of his old bandmates from NSYNC were there to serve as ushers during the ceremony. The couple made the happy announcement in March of 2017 that they were going to become parents. In October of 2017, his wife gave birth to their child, a son.
Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Wanya Morris, and a number of other figures from major vocal groups appeared on the 2021 episode of ABC’s A Very Boy Band Holiday alongside Chris Kirkpatrick. During the holiday-themed program that was broadcast on December 6, 2021, he contributed his vocals to a number of well-known Christmas carols and songs, including Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.
He is a singer, composer, dancer, music producer, and occasional actor, although he is most well-known for his work as a founding member of the pop group NSYNC, in which he sang countertenor. In addition to those talents, he is also an occasional actor. He is also involved in the music industry as a songwriter and producer, and he has appeared as a voice actor and contestant on a variety of reality television shows.
After relocating to Nashville, Tennessee in 2016, where he currently resides with his wife and kid, Kirkpatrick sold the half-acre estate in Orlando, Florida that he had nicknamed “Casa Della Musica” in 2018. This sale occurred in 2018.
