Jump To Usher Raymond's Stats
Okay, Usher may have referred to Bob Dylan as 'Bill' in a nationally televised blunder, but the mega singing sensation really does know his stuff when it comes to music and making some money from it. As a singer, songwriter, actor and dancer, Usher Terry Raymond IV has racked up a ton of accolades, trophy rooms full of golden hardware and a sterling net worth of $296,250,000.
The 'Bill' miscue came at an in-opportune time. Bob Dylan had won a Grammy Album of the Year and Usher was one of the presenters. When it came time to welcome the winner on stage...you guessed it...Usher welcomed Bill. Oh, the faux pas of a young musician.
Since that misstep, Usher has gone on to own some Grammys himself. His collection includes seven statuettes and he is a consistent occupier of Billboard top spots when he releases an album. According to the folks that keep track of these things, Usher has sold more than 65 million albums during his 15 years as an entertainer, making him one of the all-time highest selling singers in history.
As impressive as his musical accomplishments are, they are only part of the Usher story. He’s an accomplished film, television and stage actor, having the leading role in the 2006 Broadway run of Chicago, among other notable roles. This cat is also part owner of the National Basketball Association's Cleveland Cavaliers. His brand has expanded to smell like him – better described as him selling a line of fragrances. He also owns US Records, which happens to be the home of some kid named Justin – Justin Bieber.
There some things about Usher that folks don't know. His uncle is the famous dancer/singer Ben Vereen. He has a road named after him in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He believes that the best present a man can give a women is their undivided attention. Of course, he speaks from experience as he has just experience his second divorce for violating that maxim.
