      Aaron Carter, Brie Goldsobel, Connor Pledger

      Aaron Carter, the youngest male solo artist to have four Top 40 singles, began his music career at age seven - singing lead for the band “Dead End”. Two years later he made his first solo appearance, opening for the Backstreet Boys at their concert in Berlin Germany, March 1997. The performance was followed by a record contract and, in the fall of 1997, Aaron Carter released his first hit single, “Crush On You”. From there, it has been a steady rise to fame and prominence, and now we welcome a seasoned veteran of the concert circuit to The Melting Point stage. It's difficult to remember a time that this bubbly, young pop star wasn't singing. Her earliest musical memories are of rushing home from school, grabbing her inflatable microphone, and jumping up on stage...or well, the couch. Her infatuation with music continued through middle school and high school, where she sang in her school chorus and played multiple sports including soccer, lacrosse, and volleyball. She taught herself to play guitar the summer before she started college, and declared herself a singer/songwriter. The ever-growing entertainer, Brie enrolled in FAU as a theatre major where she is currently a student. She would go on to write and record with the amazing Alex Cantrall (JoJo, Dru Hill,) and emerge from his studio with 2 solid commercial tracks. She immediately shot her first music video for one of those tracks entitled 'Dive In.' She's played in front of lively crowds, record executives, and even Donald Trump, but her most rewarding gigs are sometimes the ones with an audience of one. As a part of the non-profit, Musicians On Call, Brie visits patients in hospitals and plays her songs to lift their spirits. Her incredible energy and ever-present smile are almost as infectious as those catchy, hook driven songs. more >>> Aaron Carter, the youngest male solo artist to have four Top 40 singles, began his music career at age seven - singing lead for the band “Dead End”.

      Being in the spotlight was nothing new to Aaron, born with twin sister Angel, in Tampa, Florida he grew up with two other sisters and an older brother. Aaron’s older brother wasn’t just any big brother, his just happens to be, Nick Carter of the award winning Backstreet Boys. By 1997 both Aaron and Nick’s music careers put them both on their way to super stardom.
      His first full-length album Aaron Carter (December 1997) achieved gold status worldwide including countries Norway, Spain, Denmark, Canada and Germany.
      On May 18, 1998, Carter released the EP Let The Music Heal Your Soul, a fund-raising project that featured vocals by Carter, *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, and The Moffatts amongst others. Via JIVE Records, Aaron Carter was released in the United States on June 16, 1998. His sophomore album, Aaron’s Party (Sep 26, 2000), was also released in the United States and achieved triple-platinum status/certification. All of this before Aaron was officially a teenager.

      At 13, Carter recorded the album Oh, Aaron (Aug 7, 2001) which featured his first duet recording with brother Nick. Oh, Aaron was accompanied by a video/DVD of the same name (March 26, 2002) which included footage of his 2001 Concert Tour in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, music videos and personal interviews from Carter.

      Carter’s next album, Another Earthquake (September 3, 2002), was released during the Rock, Rap, and Retro Tour. The album featured the patriotic-themed single “America A O” and ballad ”Do You Remember”. The Collection Album Most Requested Hits, (November 3, 2003) included tracks from his last three albums as well as a new single, “One Better”.

      Aaron has won multiple awards over his 14 year career including TEEN Choice Awards, Kids Choice Awards, and RTL Young Artist of the Year Award. In addition to music he has also established himself as an Actor in Film, Television and on Broadway.

      On August 17, 2009 the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) announced that Carter would be joining the cast for season 9 of their primetime reality series, Dancing With The Stars. Aaron and his dance partner Karina Smirnoff became an early fan favorite and finished 5th place in the competition.

      Aaron is currently starring on Broadway in The Fantasticks, entertaining various film and television offers all while in the studio working on new music and his new album. more >>> Connor Pledger, a singer/songwriter and recording artist, was born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised near Atlanta, Georgia. Calling Georgia his home, the artist moved to Athens, Georgia in 2010, where he currently refines his material and never ceases in gaining a solid following. Throughout his high school years, the artist found his voice and musical talents thanks to many performance opportunities near his home in Conyers, Georgia. Eventually Connor added the guitar to his musical repertoire claiming his father and former musician, Bill Pledger, as his work's main inspiration. Connor's music has a contagious new sound that, no doubt, promotes first time listeners with ease and entices them all to become a part of his following comprised of fans worldwide. The UGA "Red & Black" describes his sound as "acousti-funk." His music is inspired by the sounds of BB King, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, The Allman Brothers band, and John Mayer. Connor's signature bluesy voice, hands down, brings some originality to the slew of today's new artists and sounds. He has performed in cities such as Nashville, New Orleans, New York City, London (England), Ho chi Minh City (Viet Nam) and Paris (France). In 2009, after playing a show at Eddie's Attic in Atlanta, Pledger met producer Danny Infield who later recorded his first album "Detours" (released in 2010) and also his newest project "Fight or Flight" (released July of 2012). While both albums don acoustic guitar accents, Connor's most recent sound, heard on Fight or Flight and seen in his live performances, showcases his soulful notes and blues rock inspired vocals. Both albums are now available in iTunes stores around the world. more >>>
