The R 'n' B singer shows his interest on politics and support to the Democratic parties' U.S. president candidate by planning to perform at the politician's campaign.
Singer Usher seems keen to contribute himself for the U.S. presidential campaign and is set to show his support on his preferred candidate Barack Obama by planning to sing at the Democratic Convention. According to his manager, Benny Medina, the R 'n' B singer has been approached by the Democratic parties to perform at the convention, which is scheduled to be held on August 8 in Denver, Colorado.
Confirming the news to the press, Benny said, "There've been offers to do things in and around the convention and we are just looking to see which one will be the most productive." He then also added the reason Usher's is willing to accept the request is because the singer is a "huge Barack supporter."
The R 'n' B singer himself is currently busy doing concerts to promote his latest LP "Here I Stand, that was dropped on May 27. The latest gig that Usher did was at the "This Day Music and Fashion Festival 2008" on Saturday, July 12 in Nigeria. Unfortunately, an unpleasant thing reportedly happened during Usher's performance at the event. Reports said that a brawl among fans broke out at that time and it was right in front of the stage, where the singer performed. Although there was no serious injuries caused by the fight, it is said that a man, who seems to be the one who triggered the incident, was removed from the concert by the local authorities.
