The performers for Usher’s First Annual World Leadership Awards have been announced and they include Justin Bieber and Ciara. Of course, Usher himself has previously been announced as a performer at the August 6th event in Atlanta. The R&B singer’s New Look Foundation is putting on the awards ceremony. Former President Bill Clinton will receive the Service Legacy Award, while Usher’s protegé Bieber, who is 16-years-old, will receive the Global Youth Leadership Award. Usher says in a statement that he’s honored to put on the event for those who have blazed trails as youth leaders. He says, quote, “They share New Look’s understanding that youth are not merely leaders in waiting; they are ready to achieve greatness today.”
Usher’s New Look Foundation mentors high schoolers as global leaders by providing training programs covering business, education, leadership, and service. Learn more at UsherNewLook.org.
