Usher Raymond got the chance to do what millionaires everywhere dream of… he rung the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange this morning (August 1, 2011).
Ursh was the honored guest of MTV and he joined MTV Networks Music/Films/Logo Group President Van Toffler and president of MTV Stephen Friedman to ring the bell as a part of MTV’s 30th Birthday celebration.

In honor of the occasion, Grammy-award winning recording artist Usher, along with Van Toffler, President, MTV Networks Music & Logo Group and Stephen Friedman, President of MTV rang The Opening BellSM.
I’m not feeling Ursh’s choice of attire… not one bit! 😕
At least Usher gave his outfit a thumbs up!
Seriously though, Usher’s ringing of the bell is something like a big deal. I’m so proud right now!
