Friends and family are still in shock as they continue to mourn the death of Leslie Carter, the sister of musicians Aaron and Nick Carter.
And now, Dow Brain, a songwriter and producer who worked closely with Leslie, speaks exclusively to Life & Style about his sadness over the 25-year-old's untimely death.
"I'm very sad to hear this news," Dow confides to Life & Style. "Leslie was a very kind and beautiful girl."
Leslie, who leaves behind a 10-month-old daughter and her husband, Mike Ashton, was found unresponsive in her father's home in Mayville, New York, on Jan. 31. The cause of the aspiring pop star's death has not yet been determined, but it is known that Leslie was taking multiple prescription medications.
"I imagine that it isn't easy to be surrounded by a family of superstars," Dow tells Life & Style.
Although, Leslie had yet to reach the same level of success as Nick and Aaron, her 2001 single "Like Wow!" appeared on the Shrek 3 soundtrack.
"Leslie was a very talented girl," Dow says. "I remember our recording sessions fondly."
Our hearts go out to Leslie's family and friends.
