Usher through the years
Usher Through the Years
Born in Texas on October 14, 1978, Usher Raymond, pictured above in 1995, released his first studio album the year prior, dropping the self-titled Usher while still in his teens. He went on to record the multi-platinum selling My Way, 8701, and Confessions, topping charts with hits like "You Make Me Wanna...," "U Remind Me," "U Got It Bad," "Yeah!," "Burn," and "Confessions Part II." More than 20 years after his industry debut, Usher has eight Grammys to his name. See photos of the star through the years, ahead.
