This Week in History

Just twelve days shy of his 26th birthday, Usher performed at Philips Arena on October 2-3, 2004. Usher spent all of his youth in the South; after living in Texas and Tennessee, his family moved to Atlanta believing that the city would provide better opportunities for the growth of his career. Usher was discovered on an episode of Star Search, and his career blossomed quickly during the mid-1990s. His 2004 Truth Tour boasted many sold-out shows with promises of his performing “Yeah”, “Burn”, and “Confessions Part II”; these singles were all featured on his March 2004 album Confessions and each spent several weeks on the Billboard Top 100.
