Rhythm and Blues artist, Usher, was born in 1978 with the name Usher Raymond IV, in Dallas Texas. His father, Usher Raymond III (of course), left the family when Usher was only one year old. So Usher grew up with his mother, half-brother, James Lackey, and his stepfather. In fact, most of his formative years were spent in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Usher joined his church choir in Chattanooga when he was nine years old, which kindled his love of singing and led his mother and grandmother to realize that he could sing. After joining a singing group, his family realized that singing could become a profession for him, and they moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where more opportunities for singers were available. While in Atlanta, Usher attended North Springs High School.
Although he had cut an album and already generated the first album of Usher songs at the age of 11 with an R&B group called the NuBeginnings, Usher’s real break came when he competed on Star Search at the age of 13. He was spotted and signed with LaFace records.
Over the years, Usher has written and recorded many songs. If you’d like to see an Usher songs list, you can go to Songlists.net/
