Usher sat down with Stuff.com.nz for a candid interview about touring in Australia and New Zealand, what’s coming up next, and spending time with his boys.
Usher had this to say about what it means to be successful. “As a kid I didn’t see half of what I have now days, but I knew I wanted to do something in music and I knew that I wanted to travel the world. I do feel like there is no such thing as a coincidence. Things are meant to happen or ordained to happen as a result of hard work as a reward. So you put all that together and you have a success story.”
It’s been an incredible run for the #OMGTour in Australia. Tonight is the 5th show in Melbourne, and the final show in Australia. Much love for the Fans in Oz! Some of the best fans in the world always bringing energy to the shows.
