Usher ‘overwhelmed’ by supporters of foundation
ATLANTA (AP) — Rhythm and Blues singer Usher said he was overwhelmed with gratitude by the number of supporters at his New Look Foundation’s 15th anniversary luncheon.
Legendary boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, director Kenny Leon and producer Jermaine Dupri were among more than 450 attendees at foundation’s President’s Circle Awards luncheon Thursday in Atlanta.
An auction was held during the ceremony, raising more than $98,000 for the youth development organization founded by the Grammy-winning singer.
Rapper Ludacris hosted the event. He joked about being a better dancer than Usher and spoke about his admiration of the singer’s charitable endeavors.
