Leslie Carter, the sister of Nick and Aaron Carter, has died at 25.

The aspiring singer passed away in upstate New York, Access Hollywood reports. No other details were immediately available.

“Our family is grieving right now and it’s a private matter,” the Carter family said in a statement. “We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter and granddaughter, Leslie Carter. We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time.”

Leslie’s song “Like Wow!” was included on the Shrek soundtrack in 2001, but her recording career never took off.
