41 years ago (WHAT?! He’s like 20!), Brian Littrell was born and the world changed. Maybe not immediately, but one by one, since he was 18, Brian has been touching peoples hearts – fans, strangers, and fellow celebrities alike. He’s a role model, an inspiration, a fighter of sorts and kind of our superhero.
When I asked people to send in their favorite memories with him, people responded with a fierceness and most were “How do I pick my favorite?”. When you’ve been so kind to so many that people don’t know which interaction has been their favorite, you know you’re living life right. The common denominator in everyone’s favorite memory is that Brian made every person comfortable, that he takes the time to try and get to know everyone who is excited to meet him, that he cares and that he’s listening. If you’ve ever met Mr. Littrell, you know that he is one of the most sincere “celebrities” you will ever have the chance to meet. I say “celebrity” because it’s always been clear that the fame that has been bestowed upon him isn’t his thing, but man, are we lucky it happened. We’re lucky.

Wow, there’s so many memories with Brian that I have! My favorite ones are randomly running into him at Disneyland and getting a pic with his family, and the numerous times he’s seen me during a concert or soundcheck and makes me feel special! Wishing Brian a very very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Thank you for everything you do for me personally! Love you always and forever!!! – @
I have many special memories with Brian but my favorite absolutely is the first VIP which happened in February 2014. I remember that I was very anxious but he found the way to make me feel comfortable, he hugged me once and I gave to him a personalized necklace. I remember that I looked at him trying to understand his reaction: he opened his eyes a little more and he said: “wow it’s so beautiful, thank you so much”. He hugged me a second time and then we took the picture for the VIP while he held it in his hands. After, he went away to put the necklace with other gifts and I was starting to say goodbye to the other guys. I was near to do the same with Howie, when he went back and hugged me a third time and told me: “I’m really happy to have met you.” So then, I forgot to say bye to Howie but it’s okay. He is a very special person, human being, who is able to make you happy with little things. Happy Birthday Brian. I wish you all the best on your way now and forever, you really deserve it, you are an extraordinary man. – @
I want to share with you my favorite memories with Brian for his birthday. I’m a big fan of BSB. My fave is Brian and My Birthday is the 20th too! It is an honor to me to have the same Birthday! – @
This photo was taken in NYC August 97 at a autograph session when Bsb released their 1st CD in the USA. Brian was the first I would talk to. I was so nervous, I walked up and in his amazing Kentucky accent, he said “Hi darling , what your name?”
I said, “I’m DEBBBBIE!”
He smiled and said “Nice to meet you I’m BRIANNN!”
