Nearly two decades after rising to fame as part of the best-selling boy band in history, two members of the Backstreet Boys were captured on video recently getting baptized in Israel's Jordan River.
Last month, Backstreet Boys members Howie Dorough and Brian Littrell took time out of the Middle East leg of the band's world tour to connect with their faith in the holy land through an emotional baptism ceremony. Littrell, also a Christian artist, was joined by his wife, Leighanne Littrell, during the ritual he described as an "amazing experience."
When this nerdy looking boy band, Triple Threat, took the stage, the people watching didn't seem impressed. The judges even laughed at them. That's until they started to harmonize.
Triple threat immediately caught the ears of the judges and the heart from the crowd, as they started to sing. In this audition they sing the song "Classic," and it sounds amazing. Even more amazing is how these boys met. It all started when the three of them got injured on the football team. While being injured, they were able to find things to do, such as sing together. They realized that when they sing music together it sounds really good.
I mean who would really believe these boys can really sing well together? Proving once again, don't judge a book by its cover! more >>

There were 3,000 people gathered to hear what the third lead singer to join the Christian Rock Band band Audio Adrenaline in three years sounded like, but technical difficulties made the situation a scary one for the group's latest frontman Adam Agee in Fayetteville, North Carolina, last February. Months after this tumultuous first tour stop with the group, Agee is confident that God brought him to Audio Adrenaline for a reason.
Agee, the former frontman of the pop punk band Stellar Kart, which has gone on an indefinite hiatus, is now the lead singer of Audio Adrenaline following some major shakeups in the band. After lead singer Mark Stuart was diagnosed with a voice condition, the band took a six-year break in 2006.
Audio Adrenaline, known as Audio A to fans, came back together in 2012 with Kevin Max from DC Talk as the lead vocalist. However, Max left the group in 2014 and was replaced by Josh Engler from the band Abandon, before Agee took his place last February. more >>
