The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes Reaches Out to Sandy Hook Victim

The Wanted's Nathan Sykes Reaches Out to Sandy Hook Victim

Nathan Sykes has taken to his Twitter account to reach out to Carlee Soto for her birthday.

The 19-year-old The Wanted singer reached out to Carlee, whose sister Victoria Soto was a teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School, after hearing that she was a big fan of the group.

“Sending all my love to @ICarlee23 for your birthday! You, Vicki and your family are such an inspiration. Hope you have a lovely day,” Nathan wrote.

“Next time we are in NYC I have arranged for you to come and hang out with us if you are up for that? Would be lovely to see ya xx.”

The Wanted Sing ‘White Christmas’ A Cappella With a Puppy (VIDEO)

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas with The Wanted? Well, today is your lucky day!

The “I Found You” crooners — Max George, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran — got into the holiday spirit with an a cappella version of “White Christmas” for MTV. The British-Irish boy band may make club-ready hits, but that doesn’t mean they don’t know how to harmonize.

And if that doesn’t make you swoon, then perhaps scene-stealer Stormy the dog will do the trick. The golden retriever leaves the performance mid-way through the warbling, only to come back moments later — much to the guys’ excitement.

The Wanted got into the holiday spirit earlier this year, posing for Esquire magazine in a festive spread, complete with presents, tinsel and eating oversized gingerbread cookies.

After a successful year — their club hit “Glad You Came” cracked the Top 10 — The Wanted are currently enjoying a much-needed break. However, it won’t be long until the boys, who are signed to Scooter Braun’s Schoolboy Records, start working on their upcoming third album, which they hope to release in April.

“We are doing a lot more recording in January in the UK,” McGuiness recently told MTV News. “We are going to go to a house together and do some writing.”

But that’s not all. The guys are also planning a world tour to coincide with their area tour in the U.K.

“We are looking to do a huge world tour,” Parker said. “Go back to different countries we’ve visited this year. We are going to do South America, do a tour in the U.S., our arena tour in the U.K. and then we’ve got our album coming out as well, in fact, we might do two albums. We are talking about next year, so we are going to have a busy year, if not busier than this year.”

The Wanted’s Max George Decks the Halls With Bandmates for ‘Esquire’ Holiday Shoot (PHOTO)

Deck the halls with… The Wanted?

The “I Found You” crooners — Max GeorgeNathan Sykes, Tom Parker, Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran — posed for Esquire in Yuletide sweaters and other various Christmas garb. From wrapping themselves in tinsel and garland to eating oversized gingerbread cookies, The Wanted are certainly getting into the holiday spirit.

Not to mention it looks like George, 24, is trying his best to get on Santa’s good side after finding himself at the center of a brawl between troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan and Florida psychic, Tiffany Eve Mitchell last week.

George reportedly partied with the Hollywood bad girl just before she was arrested for assault on Thursday. Later that night, his bandmate McGuiness wore a “Free Lindsay” shirt during The Wanted’s opening set at Madison Square Garden.

“She’s cool. She was a top girl — she’s, you know, good fun,” George told KISS FM’s JoJo Wright on Friday. “We were just out and there was a bit of trouble with someone in the club. But it got blown out of proportion, to be honest.”

During his chat with Wright on Friday, George shot down reports that Lohan’s altercation was over him.

“It wasn’t me. I didn’t instigate anything,” he said. “It was nothing to do with me.”

The Wanted Release ‘I Found You’ Music Video: Pretty Girls, Fist Fights and Diamonds (VIDEO)

The Wanted may not be as popular as One Direction (yet), but while the lads of 1D live while they’re young, their older counterparts are serving up swag in the music video for their latest single “I Found You.”

Perhaps inspired by Lupin the Third, the video has the makings of a classic caper: beautiful girls, dapper attire, fist fights and stolen diamonds. Just when you think the story is going in one direction — the guys are obviously saving the damsel in distress, right? — the boy band delivers a shock ending, proving once again why they’re pop music’s newest bad boys.

Watch the video for “I Found You” above.

“I Found You,” which was written and produced by Steve Mac (the same man behind their global smash “Glad You Came“), sounds like nothing else on the radio — and that’s a good thing.

The track aims to capitalize on its predecessor’s success, and while the two songs share certain similarities, “I Found You” pushes the boy band boundaries.

Nathan Sykes arguably steals the track from his bandmates in the bridge, as he soulfully wails, “I said, people / We’re all looking for love tonight / But sometimes we can’t see it / We run by and find the love.” And for easily excitable fangirls, this means more camera time — and make out time — for Sykes, 18, and the mysterious blonde music video vixen.

“I Found You,” the lead track off The Wanted’s forthcoming album, officially drops in November. Head over to Direct Lyrics for the song’s full lyrics.

Watch the video for the single above. Listen to The Wanted sing their hit, “Chasing the Sun,” below.

The Wanted Strip Down to Their Briefs for Magazine Shoot (PHOTO)

It looks like the boys of The Wanted are finally answering the age-old question: Boxers or briefs?

In a recent photo shoot with We Love Pop magazine, The Wanted strip down to their undergarments, making teenage girls everywhere swoon.

Your “universe will never be the same” after looking at this picture.

Hunky Max George keeps thing classic in a pair of tight, black briefs, while funny man Jay McGuiness makes a statement in a cartoonish briefs. As for Nathan Sykes, the youngest member of the man band opts for a simple pair of blue and white briefs.

Tom Parker stands out as the only one in The Wanted to choose baggy boxers, while Siva Kaneswaran looks like he’s posing for Calvin Klein in his skin-tight white briefs.

When they’re not passing the time in their underwear, The Wanted are hard at work recording their new album. The band has released its new single “I Found You,” which was written and produced by Steve Mac – the same man behind their global smash “Glad You Came.”

The Wanted Release New Single ‘I Found You’ (AUDIO)

The Wanted may not have walked away with a Moonman at Thursday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, but that’s not stopping the UK boy band from trying to score one at next year’s ceremony.

The band has released its new single “I Found You,” which was written and produced by Steve Mac – the same man behind their global smash “Glad You Came.” While the dance-heavy track shares some similarities with its predecessor, it ultimately sounds like nothing else on the radio.

Holy falsettos, boys! 

Nathan Sykes, the youngest member of The Wanted, arguably steals the track in the bridge, as he soulfully croons, “I said, people / We’re all looking for love tonight / But sometimes we can’t see it / We run by and find the love.”

It’s almost as if Sykes is saying, “Let’s see you try to do that, Harry Styles.”

“I Found You,” the lead track off The Wanted’s forthcoming album, officially drops in November. Head over to Direct Lyrics for the song’s full lyrics.
