Usher in his hometown of Atlanta, was spotted by a La Face record executive at a talent show, GA, then it took no time for Usher Raymond's career to take off. Usher was auditioned for La Face co-founder L.A. Reid when he was just 14-years-old. Usher Raymond was introduced himself to the world just as 'Usher,' and in 1994 released debut album of the same name.

Usher's first single, 'Think of You,' gained Usher much popularity and reached high status. Usher recorded a national holiday jingle for Coca-Cola in 1995. Then Usher joined various top male R&B vocalists to form Black Men United for the single 'You Will Know', which is featured on the Jason's Lyric soundtrack.

After that Usher teamed with teen singing sensation 'Monica' for a duet remake of Latimore's 'Let's Straighten It Out.' Usher released his sophomore album, 'My Way' in 1997, when Usher completed his graduation from high school. Usher always tried to display his maturity and songwriting abilities, so he co-wrote six of the nine songs and enlisted the help of producers Jermaine Dupri, Babyface, and, again, Combs.

Usher as one of R&B's hottest artists is mainly reestablished because of his album's first single, 'You Make Me Wanna', and also made him a crossover sensation. The single 'You Make Me Wanna' topped the R&B charts for 11 weeks, hit number two pop, and eventually went double platinum.

Usher full-length Confessions dropped later that March, "Yeah!" had hit the top of the Billboard charts. This album was Usher's most mature work to date and won the Grammy for best contemporary R&B album 2004.
