60 Seconds on Earth: Syria's most charming rebel (VIDEO)

In between battles, one Syrian rebel keeps up morale by singing the Backstreet Boys.

Editor's note: 60 Seconds on Earth is a regular GlobalPost series where our correspondents in the field produce video snapshots of the places and people that we find important, impressive, crazy or just unmistakably cool. Here's a recent installment on the Syrian frontline.

As the war in Syria drags on, correspondent Tracey Shelton looks back at a rebel who did his best to make everyone laugh when they weren't fighting. This footage was shot in 2012 in northern Syria.
