Usher Honors a 'Superstar'
Like many young artists, Usher grew up listening to Luther Vandross' soulful ballads and R&B classics.
Usher: Luther influenced my life in every way, in so many ways that I can't even explain. ... Before I was born, he was making music.
Oprah: Did you all get to choose the song that you wanted for this CD?
Usher: We fought about "Superstar"...but I won.
