Usher has reached another career milestone.

The “Climax” singer will be honored with the ASCAP Golden Note Award at the 26th Annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. The honor only goes to artist, musicians and composers who have greatly contributed to the industry through their gifts. Previous honorees include Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Pharrell Williams and Alicia Keys.

“I take the art of songwriting and music—making very seriously, so to be given the ASCAP Golden Note Award from an organization of my fellow music creators is a huge honor,” said Usher in a statement.

Wow, that is quite an elite group, isn’t it? Some may have “issues” with Usher’s current style of music but no one can deny that he’s definitely made a mark on the years. I mean, 8701 or Confessions anyone?

Congrats to him!

    dirty old negroes love to reward low lifes like themselves, when they do a good job on destroying the black mother of their children. And they love to praise negroes who transfer the black wealth to po white women too, and they love to hate on rappers who take care of all their black baby mamas and children. old black men are truly dumb and evil. no one respects them.
