American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actor, Usher has an estimated net worth of $140 million. After Usher Raymond was spotted by a LaFace record executive at a talent show in his hometown of Atlanta, it took no time for his career to take off. The 14-year-old auditioned for LaFace co-founder L.A. Reid, who signed the gospel choir boy to a recording contract. Raymond was introduced to the world simply as “Usher,” and released his debut album of the same name in 1994, which featured co-executive producer Sean “Puffy” Combs. The first single, “Think of You,” gained Usher wide recognition and reached gold status. Usher was only 15 years old when he released his self-titled first album in 1994. From that initial exposure, Usher was approached to do other projects. The R&B heartthrob is a part-owner of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers and is credited with discovering Canadian pop-sensation Justin Bieber who he performed with at the 2011 Grammys. Usher’s 2004 album Confessions sold 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, making it the No. 2 best-selling album of the ’00s. To date, he has sold over 65 million records worldwide, making him one of the Best selling music artists of all time.
