Usher made an appearance on ABC’s Extreme Makeover. In a recent interview, Usher talks about how it’s okay to cry and what he went through during the episode of Extreme Makeover:
R&B singer Usher Raymond is best known for his soulful sensitive lyrics and for being a notorious “mama’s boy,” but in a recent interview with Fancast.com, Usher admits that there are other things that make him cry besides his mother’s disapproval. Perhaps in an attempt to make his female fans swoon as he takes time off the stage, the music superstar told Fancast’s Todd Gold that it’s ok to cry when watching ABC’s ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.’ An admitted fan of the show and this Sunday’s celebrity guest volunteer, Usher said “I can’t say that I’m a crier every time I watch, but this time I cried. They got me on camera crying. I couldn’t help it.”
In his shirt sleeves and sunglasses, Usher also worked on special projects for the Scott’s daughters and Trina herself. “It was a labor of love,” he says. “There’s hard work, and then there’s heart work.”
“I was especially moved when I sat down and talked with the kids,” he adds. “This is an overall story about the trauma of losing a family member, about loss in general, and moving on and finding strength and healing in giving back.”
Usher was so moved by the Scotts that he gave the C.O.P.S organization a $25,000 grant through his New Look Foundation to parcel out in sums of $500 to other youth to start community service and social entrepreneurship projects.
