Early life

Usher was born to Usher Terry Raymond IV and Jonetta (O'Neal) Patton in Dallas, Texas, but spent the majority of his young life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As a child, he joined his local church choir where he discovered his ability to sing. As early as junior high school, Usher successfully entered local talent shows imitating his idol Michael Jackson. As a pre-teen Usher was a member of a boy band, although his mother, (who was managing his career) later withdrew him from the group to concentrate on his solo work. Usher's family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in the belief that the city would provide greater opportunities for showcasing his talent. While in Atlanta, Usher attended Haynes Bridge Middle School and the Performing Arts Magnet North Springs High School, and participated in show choir. Nickname: Motto: Live Large. ...

Music career

At age thirteen, Raymond competed on Star Search, where they were spotted by an A&R representative from LaFace Records, who arranged an audition for them with L.A. Reid. A contract with the company soon followed. Usher was introduced on “Call Me A Mack,” a song he recorded for the soundtrack album to the John Singleton film, Poetic Justice.

1994-1995: Usher (Debut album)

Snapshot from the music video for "Think of You" (1995).

On August 30, 1994, LaFace released Usher’s self-titled debut album. Sean “P Diddy” Combs produced several of the tracks and co-executive produced the album. Usher peaked at number twenty-five on the R&B Albums chart and was accompanied by three singles: “Can U Get Wit It,” “Think Of You,” and “The Many Ways.” Though the album garnered Usher some attention with urban music listeners, it was not a runaway hit and went virtually unnoticed by pop audiences; selling approximately 50,000 copies in America (and 100,000 abroad). The quasi-adult themes in Usher were, meanwhile, questioned by some critics due to the young age of the artist. Usher himself later admitted that he was not fully comfortable with the direction of the album. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...
