There will be few better ways to appreciate one of music's greatest icons of the last two decades than booking up some cheap Los Angeles hostels and seeing him live in his home country.
Usher has been around the music and rhythm scene almost his entire life, having first joined a church choir when he was only six years old.
He was eventually spotted when performing at a talent show by LaFace Records, who would end up signing the hit singer, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, when he was still going through his high school years.
The year of 1994 would see the artist first appear under the music spotlight, with his debut self-titled album flying off store shelves and illustrating that this was a person to watch in the industry.
Just over 15 years later, Usher has had six hit albums released, with the most recent being titled Raymond V Raymond, which has just had a deluxe edition released in the UK in September and featured hit tracks, including OMG and DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love.
His most popular track, judging by Last.fm, appears to be hit single Burn though, having gained just under 80,000 plays on the social site in the past half a year.
Those who snap up a room in a cheap Los Angeles hostel and grab themselves some tickets to see Usher will also be in for an added treat, as up-and-coming R&B artist Trey Songz will also be showcasing just why he may be considered as the next big thing in the music scene.
