fun facts

Kevin spent his first 9 years of his life on a 10-acre farm and the following 8 years in a modern-day log cabin.

"I had a great childhood," he says, "I loved school, played in Little League Football, rode horses and dirt bikes, and sang into the hairbrush in front of my bedroom mirror."

In 1991, Kevin's father died of cancer. Of course this was a very hard thing to get through for Kevin and his family, tears still come to his eyes when he thinks about his father.

Before he was a Backstreet Boy, he worked at Disney World as Aladdin and one of the Ninja Turtles, and he sometimes was a guide.

After receiving his first set of keyboards as a high school freshman, Kevin spent his adolescense in chorus and drama clubs, entering talent shows, and he even played keyboards in restaurants and at weddings.

The group nicknamed Kevin "Mr. Body Beautiful". I think that's 'cuz he's got such a nice body!

Kevin is the most considerate and helpful of all the guys. He always makes sure you feel at home and never have an empty stomach.

A lot of people tell Kevin he's got really nice eyes.
