A benefit concert held in memory of the late pop singer Aaron Carter was a success.

The Wednesday event, titled "Songs for Tomorrow: A Benefit Concert," featured performances from Aaron's older brother Nick Carter and many of their peers and fellow celebrities.

The concert held at Heart in West Hollywood, California, raised more than $150,000, and all proceeds will be forwarded to On Our Sleeves, a charity that focuses on helping kids battling mental and emotional health problems, Entertainment Tonight has learned.

Nick was joined by his Backstreet Boys co-member AJ McLean, Nsync's Lance Bass and 98 Degrees' Jeff Timmons. Other stars who showed up and performed were Ryan Cabrera, David Archuleta, B. Howard, LFO's Brad Fischetti and O-Town.

According to the news outlet, McLean and Bass performed Nsync's "Bye Bye Bye." The two were joined by Nick and Timmons for BSB's "I Want It That Way" and "Shape Of My Heart." Nick also performed his newly released single, "Hurts To Love You," which is dedicated to his late brother, who died on Nov. 5, 2022, at the age of 34.

Hosted by Aaron's twin sister Angel Conrad and Bass, the benefit concert sought to raise awareness for mental health. Throughout the evening, Nick and other performers spoke about mental health in between their song numbers.

The concert took place two days after Aaron's on-off fiancée, Melanie Martin, was photographed stepping out in Los Angeles with their son, Prince Lyric. The couple welcomed their son in November 2021.

In the photos exclusively released by Daily Mail, Martin was seen wearing Carter's branded hoodies and jeggings while visiting The Grove. She appeared to be busy texting on her phone while someone else was carrying the 14-month-old toddler.

Martin recently made headlines when she and Aaron's mother, Jane Carter, shared their theory on what could have possibly caused the late singer's death.

According to the two, they believe the "I'm All About You" hitmaker died of a drug overdose after finding text messages between Aaron and an alleged drug dealer. Carter's family clarified that they are still waiting for the toxicology report to confirm their suspicion.

Aaron had been very vocal about his substance abuse struggles and mental health issues in the years before his death. In 2019, he was diagnosed with multiple personality disorder, acute anxiety, manic depression and schizophrenia. He also admitted to having a huffing addiction.
