Career[change | change source]

The five male band members were put together by American boy band maker Lou Pearlman and marketed internationally in the seven -part RTL-II television series Big in America. The composition - two Americans, two Germans and one Englishman - is aimed directly at the largest music markets. After Big in America was broadcast in May and June 2005, the single "Maria" was released in early July, entering the German singles chart at number two and staying at number one for four weeks.
