One of the best-selling American artists of all time, R'n'B badboy Usher has come a long way since singing in the church choir in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Although active in the music business since a young age, Usher's breakthrough came with the 1997 album My Way, with lead single You Make Me Wanna going platinum in the US and hitting number one in the UK charts. His explosive rise to fame was cemented with the 2004 album Confessions, which sold an astounding 20 million copies worldwide and spawned the dancefloor favourite Yeah! and slow jam Burn. Still one of the most successful artists on the scene, Usher has sales of over 45 million albums worldwide and has won five Grammy awards, four World Music awards, and 19 Billboard Music awards.
