Usher Raymond was born in 1978 and raised in the Southern United States. A devoted singer at an early age, Usher grew up performing with his church choir in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He scored his first record contract at the age of 14 with LaFace Records in Atlanta, and shortly after released his first album, Usher, in 1994. It wasn’t until his follow-up record, My Way (1997), that Usher became a hit R&B singer. He stood out from the pack with his awe-striking live performances and smooth vocals. While continuing to build a musical empire, Usher also became an actor, performing in a Broadway production of Chicago, and acting in film and TV.
