Looking back to the year 1992, it all began in Orlando, Florida. A high school student named Howard Dwaine Dorough (born August 1973) kept bumping into the same two boys when he joined some local auditions. To his surprise, young Howie found out that he shared the same interest in classic soul with those boys, whose names are Alexander James McLean (born January 9,1978) and Nicholas Gene Carter (born January 28, 1980). These three enthusiastic boys also felt that they could make a perfect harmony together, so it did not require a long time for them to become good friends. Having been inspired by Boyz II Men and Color Me Badd, they decided to form a vocal group while looking for two more members. Under the keen eye of their manager and producer, Louis J. Pearlman, they eventually took Kevin Scott Richardson (born October 3, 1972) along with his cousin, Brian Thomas Littrell (born February 20, 1975) as the last two members of the group. Deriving the name of an Orlando popular flea market, they finally came up as Backstreet Boys (BSB).
