It was a star-studded event yesterday (Sept 7th) when Usher received his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
Stevie Wonder, Kelly Rowland, Miguel, L.A.Reid, will.i.am and Usher’s “Hands of Stone” co-star Edgar Ramirez all came out to witness and support their superstar friend, who makes the 2,588th celebrity to receive a star on the famed boulevard. Terry Lewis, a fellow Walk of Famer, along with his music production partner Jimmy Jam and guest Harvey Weinstein, all speeches on behalf of the honorary event.
In his acceptance speech, Usher praised his first manager/mother, Jonetta Patton. “I don’t just celebrate this moment by myself. I celebrate it with those people who invested in me, those people who loved me through my hard times,” Usher said. “Mom, thank you for everything and all the people that you’ve actually helped to bring here. They wouldn’t be here if you didn’t recognize and make sure you selected the right people to be around and to help me be the man I am today and in this position.”
Usher’s other family in attendance included his grandmother, aunt, sons Raymond V and Naviyd, and wife Grace Miguel.
