You could say my taste in music is all over the board. I like hip-hop, R&B, country, indie rock, classic rock and even classical. Usher is one of my favorite R&B singers from "back in the day." Usher became famous after releasing his album My Way in the 90s. Nice & Slow was a #1 hit on Billboard Hot 100 off of the album. Originally from Dallas, Texas Usher grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee where he joined the church choir at the age of nine before starting to sing professionally. Usher is not only a singer but also an actor and a philanthropist. He is the founder of the New Look program which helps to give children a new look on life through education and life experiences. He continues to make music that is reflective of the times and evolves as a singer-songwriter with every album.
