Usher will be honored with the 2,588th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, just nine days before the release of his highly anticipated album, “Hard to Love,” to be released on September 16th. The star will be unveiled at an 11:30 a.m. ceremony, where Usher is scheduled to speak.
The award-winning artist has sold more than 65 million albums nationwide. He’s won numerous awards including 8 Grammy Awards and was named the #1 Hot 100 artist of the 2000s decade. Billboard named him the second most successful artist of the 2000s decade, with his 2004 album “Confessions,” ranked as the top solo album of the 2000’s.
This is going to be a big year for Usher musically and in the film industry as well, he stars in the role of boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in the film “Hands of Stone,” a biopic of boxer Roberto Duran in theaters now.
