Usher is having the BEST WEEK EVER!

The pop-singer just recently completed his New Look Foundation 3rd Annual World Leadership Conference in Atlanta.  The 2012 World Leadership Conference brought kids from around the Globe to Atlanta’s Emory University for three-days of education and empowerment.  The youth were trained in New Look’s four pillars: talent, education, career and service as well as up-close and personal interaction with celebrities, influencers, and newsmakers.

“New Look is about sending the next generation out in the world with the knowledge, experience, and empowerment they need to succeed,” said Usher Raymond IV.  “These kids inspired me every day, and our goal with the World Leadership Conference is to give back a little bit of that inspiration.”

Here are a few highlights from this week’s festivities…

Kudos to Usher for securing his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart this week and for being amongst the honorees receiving  a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2013.
