Usher, or Usher Raymond the fourth was born on October 14th, 1978. Born in Dallas, Texas, Usher actually spent most of his childhood in Chattanooga, Tennessee. His father actually abandoned his family at a young age so he was raised by his mother and his grandmother. To keep him occupied, his mother actually suggested that he join the local youth choir for his church in Chattanooga, and he did just that. He was only nine years old when he joined, and it was discovered that he could sing! For this reason, Usher’s family wanted to get him to an area where he would have a lot more opportunities and they moved the family to Atlanta, Georgia so he could hopefully get a start to his music career.
Moving to Atlanta was a great thing. Usher actually started performing in groups at a very young age. At the age of 11 he actually joined a quintet that was called NuBeginnings. This group recorded songs and it was a local album that was released. To get him even more exposure, Usher competed on Star Search and that is where he was spotted by a label representative. The first album for Usher actually was released in 1994 and was a self-titled album. This album did actually get to number twenty five on the Billboard chart and had three different singles. But, Usher first needed to graduate high school before he really perused his musical career.
With the help of Jermaine Dupri, he released his second album that was My Way. This had the single “You Make Me Wanna” and it became a number one hit. This was the album that set Usher up for success and was a great album that set lots of firsts for him. He won Grammy awards for this album and the singles that came off of it.
His next album out was 8701, this had some songs like “U Remind Me” and “U Got It Bad”. They of course hit the charts and were both number ones on the chart. From there, he started to get more television and movie credibility and was in the film Texas Rangers and made appearances on shows like American Dreams, 7th Heaven, and Moesha. He continued to put out more albums that continued to bring him fame, big hits, and big album sales. Usher was a superstar at this point.
