Themes: Hi-Lo, urban nonfiction, music, entrepreneur, Hip-Hop, celebrities, biographies. From gospel choirboy to Star Search winner, Usher, whose full name is Usher Terry Raymond IV, is not just a multi-platinum recording artist. He's a singer, a dancer, and an actor. He is a composer. He has written songs for many famous artists. Usher is a proud father. He is also a mentor, a person who helps or teaches people. He works hard as an activist. He does good things for others. There's no doubt about it, today's students listen to an average of 2.5 hours of music every day. Guess what they are listening to? Hip-hop is mainstream, continually topping Billboard's Hot 100 charts. These Hi-Lo biographies engage striving readers from the very beginning with blinged-out covers, stunning four-color photographs, modern and graphic page design, and high-interest informational text. Biographies highlight the unique characteristics of each mega-rapper, including childhood struggles, personal style, rivalries, giving back, and more. Each 48-page book includes a timeline and glossary, with vocabulary words highlighted throughout.
