Chris Kirkpatrick is credited as the one who started *NSYNC, whose albums *NSYNC and No Strings Attached each sold over 10 million copies earning them the prestigious RIAA Diamond Award for both albums. He along with his four other band members achieved a music industry coup by selling over 56 million records and still hold the records for most records sold in a single and first week. No Strings Attached sold a staggering 1.1 million albums on the first day of its release and went on to sell a 2.4 million in that first week. Chris has appeared on countless TV shows, magazine covers and won numerous music awards and performed the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
Since *NSYNC went on hiatus, Chris has gone on to pursue a solo career. To date his group Nigels11 has performed live shows as well as released several tracks via the internet much to the delight of his fans. Additionally, since 2002, Chris has also lent his acting and vocal skills to the Nickelodeon cartoon, The Fairly Odd Parents, as the teeth-loving pop star, Chip Skylark.
Perhaps Chris's proudest achievement has little to do with music and everything to do with sharing his good fortune with those infinitely less fortune than he. The Chris Kirkpatrick Foundation was established with that very thought in mind. Through his foundation Chris continues the work he began with *NSYNC's Challenge For The Children Foundation raising over 5 million dollars for children's charities. Chris has been able to reach out to disadvantaged children and offer them help and hope. The foundation allows him to share his successes and dreams with young people while making a contribution to change lives.
Luckily for them, Chris Kirkpatrick is just getting started.
