WHAT HE DIED FROM

Trousdale died in a hospital in Burbank, California after suffering from complications from COVID-19. A woman named Jane Gagle reported how the star had died after struggling with an “acute strep infection that shut down his body.”

Gagle works at the Pacific Ballet Dance Theatre, where Trousdale also worked. She also revealed: “Chris was in a coma, on life support when he passed.” In 1999, the singer joined Dream Street which included Jesse McCartney and others.

BEING IN A BOY BAND

Even though the band members were all underage, they had all acted on the New York City and Broadway scenes. The self-titled album went gold with songs like “It Happens Every Time” and “I Say Yeah.”

They got to tour with big artists like Britney Spears and Aaron Carter. In 2002, the band fell apart after facing a lawsuit from their parents.

DREAM STREET BREAKS UP

The group’s parents accused producers Louis Baldonieri and Brian Lukow of doing sordid things like encouraging them to sleep with teenaged fans. The duo was also accused of providing the band members with liquor and pornography.

ACTING FROM A YOUNG AGE

Trousdale also featured in the Dream Street film “The Biggest Fan,” before things went sour. He ended up acting in small roles but struggled to launch his career even though he’d started on the stage at the age of 8.

CHRIS’S ACTING ROLES

At the time, he did a tour of “Les Miserables” and “The Sound of Music.” Some of his acting roles after the breakup included “Shake It Up” and “Austin & Ally.”

AUDITIONING ON THE VOICE

In 2012, he auditioned for “The Voice,” as he worked as a waiter in a sushi restaurant, but failed to get through the blind auditions. He released his last song, "Summer," about a year ago.
