R&B star Usher Raymond IV was in Detroit Thursday for a series of events connected to the 12th annual Ford Freedom Awards.
He’s got the number 1 single right now with “O.M.G.,” the duet he has with Will.i.am, but the 31-year-old was honored not for his music but for his entrepreneurial efforts — particularly his work with teenagers via his Usher’s New Look mentorship program.
His efforts in that filed earned him the evening’s Ford Freedom Scholar Award.
Usher also hit up the Oprah Winfrey show yesterday to perform his number 1 hit song. In case you missed it, check out the video:
