As a young boy, Howie Dorough gravitated to performing, singing in the school and church choirs as well as acting in local theater troupes. Small parts followed in films like the comedies Parenthood and Cop and Half.
In April of 1992, he auditioned to become one of the original members of the Backstreet Boys, joining Nick Carter, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson in manager Lou Pearlman's Orlando-based boy band. Their breakthrough came in 1999 with 'Millennium'.
While the band became the most successful boy band in history, Dorough also pursued solo projects, including the management group HC Entertainment which he ran with CJ Huyer of 3deep. He also released a solo album 'Back to Me' in 2011.
Outside of music, Dorough supports the Dorough Lupus Foundation, founded in memory of Howie’s sister Caroline. Most recently Dorough has been involved in property development, owning a chain of condos and a hotel.Visit Howie's IMDB page
