For more than 20 years, Usher has captured the music world with his sensual croon, R&B anthems, club hits, and self-proclaimed “revolutionary pop.” Usher’s 2012 album Looking 4 Myself spawned the megahits “Scream” and “Climax,” the latter sustaining an 11-week reign atop Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, his 12th number one on the chart, and earning Usher a Grammy Award for Best R&B performance. Ticket buyers praise Usher’s sheer athleticism and explosive dance numbers in concert, but also appreciate his agile voice when his falsetto elicits screams from the crowds. Usher has toured and collaborated with many artists including Trey Songz, will.i.am, and Miguel. Usher was key in Justin Bieber’s career mentoring the young popstar and was a coach on NBC’s reality singing competition The Voice during its fourth season.
Usher found success in the late 1990s with hits like “Nice & Slow” and later with his Grammy Award-winning singles, “U Remind Me” and “U Don’t Have to Call.” A critics and fan favorite, Confessions (2004) produced the massive hits “Yeah!” and “Confessions Part II.” Usher is currently working on his next album and will appear in “Hands of Stone” as the boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard alongside Robert De Niro in 2014.
