Usher Brings OMG Tour To Houston

I’m not a music critic or a concert reviewer, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity Wednesday night to stand in the “media pit” at Toyota Center and snap a few pictures of  pop/r&b singer Usher Raymond IV.

Usher, as he’s better known to his fans, performed in front of  a near sellout crowd which seemed to be filled with more women than men.

However, it was  definitely a show for everyone and people of  all ages.  I saw lots of young ladies dancing and singing along with their friends, mothers and grandmothers!

Usher’s high energy show covered the full span of  his music – from love ballads to dance tunes.

Usher’s concert in Houston took place only two days after he won two categories at the American Music Awards show.

His protegé , teen heart-throb Justin Bieber, won four awards and credited Usher for much of  his success. 

In addition to being a big fan of his music, I also respect Usher for the philanthropic work he does through his New Look Foundation. http://www.ushersnewlook.org/

After the first three songs of the concert, reporters and photographers were escorted out of the pit.

Eventually I made it back to my seat and spent the rest of the night dancing and singing to all of  Usher’s greatest hits.

Thanks to June Deadrick for hosting a great evening.
