An all-arounder is a perfect description for American vocalist Lance Bass. He’s well known for being in the band NSYNC, but he didn’t stop there. Along with his vocal skills, he is also an accomplished author, actor, producer, and even got NASA-certified to be an astronaut. Growing up, he always wanted to be an astronaut but life had other plans for him. It wasn’t until high school that his life did a 180; during his junior year he called Justin Timberlake and got the opportunity of a lifetime. Without having much time to think about it, he became part of NSYNC. An artist without limits is a good way to describe Bass.
Justin Timberlake and his mother, Lynn Harless, approached him about filling in for Jason Galasso as the lead singer in the NSYNC band.
