Kevin Scott Richardson is an American author, entrepreneur, publisher and editor.


After seeing an ad about the vocal group, called the Backstreet Boys, he went to check them out, auditioned, and joined the group. After joining, the group was still looking for one more member, so Richardson called Brian Littrell, who is Richardson's first cousin (Littrell's father and Richardson's mother are siblings), to ask him to audition for the group. Littrell was immediately accepted, and the next day, he joined the group.

After 13 years of what can only be described as a dream come true, I have decided that it is time to leave the Backstreet Boys. It was a very tough decision for me but one that was necessary in order to move on with the next chapter of my life. Howie, Brian, A.J., and Nick will always be my little brothers and have my utmost love and support. I would like to thank the Backstreet fans for all the beautiful memories we have shared together and look forward to including you in the next phase of my life. I wish my brothers continued success and look forward to their new album. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)


Richardson stayed in Kentucky for almost a year, then after encouragement from his mother, he went back to Florida to follow his dreams of a music career. He continued to work at Disney while also earned a living as a model, writing music, performing in dinner clubs, taught ballroom dancing as a certified Latin and ballroom dance instructor and was an extra for the film My Girl.

In 2012, Richardson began working on his first solo album. During the 2013 Backstreet Boys cruise when each member had their own individual events, Richardson performed an event called Cover Story where he performed various covers of songs. He had mentioned that he would release an album called Cover Story. The album would include songs that have influenced him over the years. The album was supposed to be released in 2012 (Source: en.wikipedia.org)


Actors of television and film, recording artists, sports figures, stars of reality television, all are thrust into the limelight. For some it is a fleeting 15 minutes, for others a lifetime. The ways they respond to the public’s attention are as varied as the performers themselves. It is no secret that America places a very high value on celebrity, and when such a person begins to speak we tend to listen. Invariably, all who have achieved high-profile status find the opportunity to use their voices, or their images, to make a difference. For some, the causes and organizations drawing them to dedicate their time relate to very personal experiences or deeply-held passions.

The event was kept secret and had zero turnouts from the paparazzi. No helicopters even circled the area attempting to grab that exclusive front page pic. The other guys did not stand for Kevin, instead, Kevin's brother, Jerald, was his best man, and his other brother, Tim, performed the ceremony for them (Tim is a priest.). This wedding was huge, unique and one of the most beautiful. There was an old-fashioned Romeo-and-Juliet-type theme, and the wedding party was dressed accordingly. The men wore suits with Versace sandals. Kristin was wearing a very beautiful beige wedding gown. Jill (last name unknown) was one of her bridesmaids in her simple yet elegant wedding. It looked just like Robin Hood and Lady [Marian] getting married in a forest. She walked on red rose petals in her bare feet on her way to the altar. The aisle was a trail of rose petals. Only close family and friends were invited, and of course, the rest of the Boys. Kristin's twin nephews were the ring-bearers and her 2-year-old niece was the flower girl. Being so young, she needed some help getting down the aisle from her grandmother. The couple met when they were both employed at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The other four Backstreet Boys -- Brian, Howie, Nick, and A.J. -- were all in attendance at the ceremony. According to the other BSB members, the wedding was a very emotional time for Kevin he was crying a lot in fact, the boys and he were supposed to sing an acapella song but were not able to due to Kevin's tears and emotions. Howie has revealed that Kevin, bawled his eyes out at his wedding earlier this month. Nice to know you can trust a friend not to blab your blubbing tendencies to the whole world! Just to further Kev's embarrassment Howie added that the band, all of whom attended the touching ceremony, would have performed an acapella number had it not been for the choked up state of the groom. 'Kevin was crying too much,' explained Howie, 'He's a very emotional guy,' before deciding to get in on the 'new man act' by adding, 'All of us were very emotional there. He's like a brother.' They went on a romantic/private honeymoon to Italy & went to the Anema E Core club in Capri & the Dolce and Gabbana fashion show in Milan. "We went on a honeymoon. We went to Italy and I ate a lot of pasta and olives, and I gained about ten pounds...," Kevin said about their honeymoon. On August 25 they had a private party to celebrate their wedding (in California).
