The combination of Usher's matured voice,
self-confidence and youthful flavor displays much of Usher's vibrant
personality through his music. Usher leaves no question on his superb
vocal abilities, providing a variety of ranges and deliveries through
While graduating from high school and finishing his sophomore album, Usher
also made time to polish one of his greatest strengths:
his show. "I love the stage, to dance and perform," says un-excited
Usher. "The stage is my first love." And it shows.
Antonio "L.A." Reid describes Usher as "the
ultimate entertainer" and attributes much of that to his
"great voice, fashionable looks and superstar presence."
Dubbing him "the king of hip-hop soul," Reid explains, "There
hasn't been an artist with this much excitement in many years. Usher
makes a serious contribution to urban culture."
That is true both on and off the stage.
Understanding the responsibility of being in the limelight, Usher
feels it's very important to portray a positive image to America's
youth. He has involved himself in several community activities including
serving as the national spokesperson for the U.S. Department of
Transportation's "Get Big On Safety" campaign.

of Usher's level-headed attitude and responsibility comes from
strong family values and a good old-fashioned church upbringing. Raised
by his mother, who also manages him, he and his little brother moved to
Atlanta from Tennessee when Usher was 12. Usher started
singing in the church choir under the direction of who else but
his mom who was also the choir director.
"I've learned that this
business is very demanding and stressful, but my mother's been a great
teacher. She keeps me grounded." Once in Atlanta, Usher
started entering local talent shows, where he was spotted by a LaFace
Records representative and was asked to audition for L.A. Reid. Soon
after that, Usher was signed to the label and began recording his debut album.
He joined forces with several of the industry's top
male artists to form Black Men United to record the gold single
"You Will Know," featured on the
"Jason's Lyric" soundtrack. His
single "Dreaming'" was the first release off LaFace Records'
1996 Olympic Album "Rhythm of the Games" and he did a duet on Arista recording artist's Monica's debut platinum album remaking the hit
"Let's Straighten It Out."
"You Make Me Wanna," re-established Usher
as one of R&B's hottest artists, and also made him a crossover
sensation; it topped the R&B charts for 11 weeks, hit number two
pop, and eventually went double platinum. Both of the follow-up singles,
"Nice & Slow" and "My Way," also went platinum;
the former stayed at number one on the R&B charts for eight weeks
and became his first number one pop single.
"This is still just the beginning," says the
young star enthusiastically. "I feel like I've accomplished so much
already, but I still have my whole life ahead of me and much more to do.
I'm learning to play instruments, I want to get into acting, I'm open to
do so much."
