Joey Fatone wasn’t the only one to secure superstar status from his high school.

“I went to high school with Luis Fonsi, DJ Khaled and A.J. Pierzynski in Orlando,” Fatone, 47, exclusively tells Us Weekly’s 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me. “Wayne Brady and Johnny Damon also went to my school.”

Before becoming a member of ‘Nsync, Fatone attended Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando. The singer and his family relocated from New York City to Florida when he was 13 years old. Despite moving to a new state as a teen, Fatone was able to make friends.

He grew close to Fonsi, 45, who also moved to Orlando from Puerto Rico as a kid. Fonsi and Fatone were members of their school’s a cappella group called “The Big Guys.” The musical duo bonded over their love of music and their desire to perform. Fonsi and Fatone even attempted to do a show of their own at one point.
