ALBANY, N.Y. — Singer Leslie Carter, the sister of Aaron Carter and former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, has died in upstate New York. She was 25.

Ms. Carter’s single “Like Wow” was on the soundtrack for “Shrek” in 2001. In 2006, she appeared with her brothers on the E! reality show “House of Carters.”

A family spokesman provided no details Wednesday on where or how she died.

Nick Carter, now on the road on a solo tour, said he will continue with his scheduled concerts, including one Feb. 11 at Chicago’s House of Blues.

“Performing is cathartic to me,” he wrote on his website, “and I am dedicating the rest of my tour to my sister since she loved to watch me perform.”
