His father left the family when Usher was a baby. He grew up with his mother, then a stepfather, and a half-brother named James Lackey. His mother advised him to join the local church youth choir in the same city he grew up in Chattanooga when he was nine.

His grandmother found his ability to sing, even though it was not. Until Usher attended a singing group that she thought he could sing professionally. After that, his family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he could find great opportunities to express his talent as a beginner.

While in Atlanta, he studied at North Springs High School. While being a student, his mother put him in local singing contests. After that, he caught the attention of a music artist and Repertoire (A&R) from LaFace Records. In 1994, he started his career and released the self-titled debut album Usher. In 1997, he released his second album, My Way, and gained fame in the late 1990s.

He released “Nice & Slow” which got at number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, with its two singles “You Make Me Wanna…” and “My Way”. In 2001, he released his third album, 8701, with its three singles “U Remind Me” “U Got It Bad”, and “U Don’t Have to Call”. It sold eight million copies across the world. In 2002 and 2003, he won his first two Grammy Awards in the category of Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.
