Usher Raymond is already a superstar well on his way to becoming an R&B legend. At the tender age of 13, Usher appeared on the TV competition Star Search. His first hit single, 1997’s “You Make Me Wanna,” soared to number one on the charts and solidified his star status. Girls couldn’t get enough of his charm, smooth vocal chops, impressive dance moves and of course–his 6 pack abs! Usher went on to sell 25 million albums by the age of 26. He now has 7 Grammy awards, has toured worldwide and has tried his hand at acting. Some of his memorable hits include “Yeah!” “Confessions,” and “My Boo,” a duet featuring Alicia Keys. Usher dated TLC’s Rozanda “Chili” Thomas and she starred in his video for “You Got It Bad.” After their split, he briefly dated Naomi Campbell before marrying Tameka Foster, a stylist, with whom he has two sons, Usher V and Naviyd. Oh yeah, and it’s Usher we can thank for discovering Justin Bieber!
