AJ McLean wears a lot of different hats. He’s a member of the Backstreet Boys, he’s a singer, he’s a dancer — but above all else, he’s a father.

Which is why he credits his two-year-old daughter, Ava, for inspiring the new music video for his song “Live Together.”

“My daughter Ava was part of my inspiration for ‘Live Together,’ I want her to grow up in a world where equality, love and compassion are stronger than hate, racism and homophobia,” the 37-year-old exclusively tells In Touch.

The video, which was dubbed an “anti-discrimination anthem” by Rolling Stone, touches on these heavy issues and more.

AJ explains to In Touch, “I hope that anyone who watches the video comes away with the message that we can all make change, that we each have the power to do and be good and we need to stand up now, together, to set an example for our kids and each other so that they grow up and so we grow old in a better world."
