Although originally hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee, Usher has made a significant impact in Las Vegas throughout his illustrious musical journey. Over the years, the renowned singer has graced Las Vegas with numerous unique performances, including his popular 'My Way' residency. In acknowledgment of his contributions, the city has now presented him with the Key to Las Vegas.
This past Tuesday saw the city's officials, including City Councilman Cedric Crear and Mayor Carolyn Goodman, come together to celebrate the R&B sensation. In an official proclamation, October 17 has been designated as “Usher Raymond Day.”
A grateful Usher remarked during the ceremony, “I truly appreciate this remarkable honor. Recognizing the dedication and hard work behind such gestures, I’m deeply humbled. My commitment extends beyond the stage; I'm also deeply connected to the pulse and energy of this incredible city.”
Adding to Usher's list of accolades, it was recently announced that he will headline the Apple Music halftime show for the upcoming Super Bowl LVIII. Notably, this will be the first time that the Super Bowl will be hosted in Las Vegas, with the event scheduled for February 11 at the Allegiant Stadium.
Councilman Crear enthusiastically noted, “It’s a monumental occasion that the Super Bowl is being hosted in Las Vegas for the very first time. And who better to represent us at the Halftime Show than our very own adopted son, Usher Raymond. We have every confidence that he'll make us immensely proud.”
On a separate musical note, the duo of BJ the Chicago Kid and Coco Jones recently showcased their dynamic energy in the track “Spend The Night.”
