Even if the group was first launched in the United States by Boyband Titan Lou Pearlman - who was responsible for the success of bands like Backstreet Boys, N?SYNC, O-Town and Natural -, US5 is firmly rooted in Germany. US5 started their careers in America, but in Europe, they managed a breakthrough.
Their first single 'Maria' was ranked on #6 of the Billboard Single Sales Charts in the US and held four weeks to place 1 of the German single charts. Even abroad, US5 were with her debut single 'Maria' several weeks in the Top 5 of other European countries.
In Poland US5 reached with their first album 'gold status' even before its release due to enormous pre-orders. US5 have achieved big success in Eastern before conquering the Asia music market.
All US5 Singles, Albums as well as DVDs were ranked at the peak of all charts throughout whole Europe.
Apart from heart breaking ballads like 'Come Back To Me Baby', 'Mama', 'One Night With You' or 'Too Much Heaven' the boys show repeatedly with trendy up-tempo numbers that they can be different.
The videos 'In The Club' or 'Rythm Of Life' are just two examples of what happens if US5 is ready to party and entering the dance floors. The boys mostly write their songs along with their production company Triple-M Music as a team. Their second single 'Just Because Of You' was a successful mix of both styles.
That impressed not only the media, but also big people and musicians from home and abroad. How was it, that Bee Gees member Robin Gibb was taking one of the biggest Bee Gees worldwide hits 'Too Much Heaven' and re-recorded and produced it with US5 within a duet.
Even if it's hard work to be an internationally successful, the guys never lose the fun. They are stars to touch. They live for the music and for their fans. Therefore, Izzy, Jay, Chris, Richie and Vince agreed: Without our great fans it would be no fun. Our fans give us so much energy. And as long as they do, we will give them something back.
Meanwhile, the guys toured three times throughout Europe and brought not only the girls eyes shine. Many mothers are also raving for the sweet idols of their daughters.
