Videos shared to social media show the group comforting Nick on stage as Kevin Richardson addresses the audience.
“Tonight we got a little bit of heavy hearts because we lost one of our family members yesterday,” says Richardson.
“We just wanted to find a moment in our show to recognize that Nick’s little brother, Aaron Carter, passed away yesterday at 34 years old. He was a part of our family, and we thank you guys for all the love and all the well-wishes and all the support.”
The band also dedicated their 2013 song “Breath” to the late “I Want Candy” singer.
Aaron was found dead at his house in Lancaster, CA Saturday morning. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told TMZ that Carter’s house sitter discovered his body in the bathtub and called authorities.
The rapper is survived by his 11-month-old son, Prince, his mother, Jane, and siblings, Nick, Angel and Bobbie Jean. His other sister, Leslie, was 25 when she died in 2012 from a drug overdose.
