Usher Raymond IV
(Bio Presented By Rolling Stone)
 
 
 

Born in Dallas, TX in 1978, then later moved to TN, teen R&B sensation Usher Raymond moved to Atlanta with his family when he was 13, where he began singing in a church choir. When his vocal talents became apparent, Usher was soon recruited by a talent scout for LaFace Records, who signed Usher while he was still in high school. His 1994 self-titled debut album -- executive produced by Sean "Puffy" Combs -- spawned a Top 10 hit, "Think Of You," and led to work singing jingles for Coca-Cola and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, as well as a popular duet with young R&B diva Monica.

In 1997 Usher returned with My Way, produced by Jermaine Dupri and executive produced by L.A. Reid and Babyface. The album was a huge success, dominating the R&B charts for weeks and eventually going multi - platinum.

In early 2001, Usher was set to release a new album, All About U when tracks were leaked to Napster, the Internet music sharing service; Arista ultimately opted to delay its release while the frustrated singer returned to the studio to record new tracks for the album. Finally, the following summer, the newly retitled album - named 8701 after its release date - saw the light of day.

In 2002, Usher hit Number 1 with "U Got It Bad", and "U Don't Have To Call". Usher won a Grammy for his number 1 hit -- "U Remind Me", he also won a Soul Train Award for best Male R&B/Soul album for his multi-platnium smash, 8701.

Currently In 2003, Usher is nominated for another grammy, for the same thing he was nominated a year ago (Best Male R&B Vocal Performance)-- this time for the hit "U Don't Have To Call", even though his album, 8701, has been out for a solid year and a half. Usher won at the grammy's for the second year in a row, Usher right now in 2003 is putting together his record label US Records, and is currently working on a new album.
