Usher pulled on some work gloves, grabbed a pair of trimmers and chopped away at a patch of vines that had overtaken a fence at a New Orleans school shuttered by Hurricane Katrina.

Five-time Grammy winning R&B artist Usher has on Tuesday June 13th, 2006 joined dozens of volunteers to clear the overgrown lawn of the International School of Louisiana, the state's first foreign language-based charter school, which has been closed since Katrina hit August 29.

Just like the many other volunteers, Usher pulled on some work gloves, grabbed a pair of trimmers and chopped away at a patch of vines that had overtaken a fence at a New Orleans school shuttered by Hurricane Katrina.

"To see it, in this state, it's devastating," Usher said when visited storm-damaged neighborhoods in New Orleans and nearby St. Bernard Parish. "I'm here to physically do something and hopefully motivate other people to do the same," the musician added.
