    Usher Honored with Icon Award at Apollo Spring Benefit 2024

    Usher and his wife, Jennifer Goicoechea Raymond, were the talk of the town at the Apollo Spring Benefit 2024, where Usher was honored with the Icon Award. The couple, who tied the knot in February, looked stunning as they arrived hand-in-hand and posed for photos on the red carpet. Usher rocked a burgundy suit with flared pants, while Jennifer dazzled in a black mini dress with a patterned shirt and a sparkling purse.

    The couple shares two children, daughter Sovereign Bo, 3, and son Sire Castrello, 2, while Usher also has two sons from a previous marriage. During his acceptance speech, Usher made sure to give a special shoutout to his wife, expressing his love and gratitude for her unwavering support.

    The Apollo celebration featured performances from Jordin Sparks, Johnny Gill, and others, with Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds receiving the inaugural Legacy Award. Usher’s Icon Award comes just before he is set to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2024 BET Awards, joining the ranks of music legends like Prince and Whitney Houston.

    Usher expressed his gratitude for the honor, stating, “It’s an honor to be receiving this award from such an iconic and historic cultural institution in New York City.” With his musical legacy continuing to grow, Usher’s fans can expect more exciting things from the R&B icon in the future.
