Nick Carter Honors Fallen Sister Leslie Carter With “Falling Down”

By: Idolator Staff / February 4, 2012

Nick Carter is no doubt still reeling from the news that his sister Leslie has died in an apparent drug overdose, but he hasn’t let that stop him from sharing his music with fans: “Performing is cathartic to me and I am dedicating the rest of my tour to my sister since she loved to watch me perform,” he said in a statement. Nick carried on with that sentiment Wednesday night at Irving Plaza in New York City, where he said: “I’ve never done this before, and I never thought I’d ever have to, but I’d like to dedicate this song to my sister,” before launching into “Falling Down” from his solo album I’m Taking Off. Watch the “Beautiful Lie” singer tribute Leslie below.
