Usher to Perform at NFL Season Kickoff Concert


Usher


The five time Grammy Awards recipient has been listed alongside Natasha Bedingfield and Keith Urban to perform at NFL season opener concert.

R'n'B superstar Usher is lending his voice in the kickoff celebration for the new NFL season. The 29-year-old performer has been set to perform at a concert held at Columbus Circle in New York on Thursday, September 4 alongside other big name musicians, including Natasha Bedingfield and Keith Urban.

Confirming his appearance in the special event, Usher confessed that his participation is his way to be the halftime entertainment at the 2009 Super Bowl. "I'm hoping that this leads, definitely, to that," he said. "This whole process is basically you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours." In the concert, he will be accompanied by Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am and performing three songs, "Here I Stand", "Changing Places" and "What's Your Name".

On him eyeing the forthcoming Super Bowl which will be held in February 2009, he explained to the Associated Press, "I don't think it's too early to consider it. Certainly being associated with the organization makes that a lot more possible. There have been conversations for a lot of years about me being part of a performance at a Super Bowl."

The afternoon concert itself is going to be started from 3 P.M. just before the Washington Redskins challenge the Super Bowl champion New York Giants as the season opener game. It will be streamed on NFL.com.
