Leslie Carter, the younger sister of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter and singer Aaron Carter, died Tuesday in upstate New York at the age of 25.

No details were provided on her cause of death.

"Our family is grieving right now and it's a private matter," a family spokesperson said. "We are all deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter. We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time."

An aspiring singer herself, Leslie had a song "Like Wow!" that was featured on the Shrek soundtrack in 2001, and she appeared on House of Carters.

Her 1999 debut album was never released.

She is survived by four siblings, husband of three years Mike, and a daughter, Alyssa Jane, 10 months. Our hearts go out to all of them. R.I.P. Leslie.
