Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The eldest member of *NSYNC and the man who got it all started, dark-haired performer Chris Kirkpatrick made up for his relatively advanced age with an abundance of childlike exuberance; clearly no one would ever accuse him of being the band's most mature member. Encouraged to form a vocal group that would fuse dancing and singing talents into a powerhouse of entertainment, Kirkpatrick called upon known singer and dancer Joey Fatone, a Brooklyn import who had made a name in Orlando while making a living as a performer at Universal Studios theme park. Joining in the fold were talented singers and dancers J.C. Chasez and Justin Timberlake, young veterans of the 1990s Disney Channel series "The Mickey Mouse Club". Though Kirkpatrick was in college and Timberlake wasn't through puberty, the four found a sound that was solidified with the discovery of basso profundo Lance Bass, who rounded out their impressive harmony.
