Chris Trousdale, 34-year-old pop singer and former member of late '90s/early '00s boy band Dream Street, passed away this week from complications related to COVID-19

According to a family source in a report from TMZ, Trousdale was being treated in a hospital in Burbank, Calif. when he passed away on Tuesday night. 

"I can’t believe Chris Trousdale passed away. We were going to make a YouTube video together," Trousdale's friend and out YouTuber Matthew Lush said in a statement on Twitter expressing his sadness and condolences for Trousdale's passing. "He was the one who made me realize I was gay. Oh man this is heartbreaking." 

Active mostly in the early 2000s, Dream Street was a five-member boy band that included Trousdale, Greg Raposo, Matt Ballinger, Frankie Galasso, and helped launched the career of actor and "Beautiful Soul" singer Jesse McCartney. Some of their more popular hits included "It Happens Every Time" and "Sugar Rush." 

Trousdale was pursuing his own solo music career, Us Weekly notes, and just released a single called "Summer" in 2019

Trousdale also attended The Advocate's 2019 Pride Party at the Beverly Center in Beverly Hills, Calif. last year, and frequently expressed support for the LGBTQ+ community on social media. 

Rest in power, Chris.
