One talent show title, which meant a lot to him, was when he was in middle school and had won a high school talent show. As one can see Usher had a long hard road but survived it and has made it to the top. The three questions that I decided on were: Name people who inspired this person? How do you know this book is a biography?
Tell why this person became famous? First, His mother, J-Pat was into music as well so Usher was always surrounded by music. J-Pat being a choir director saw the talent in her son. Another person who had also influenced Usher in the early on was Puff Daddy, Puff was an artist as well, he had helped Usher through his career even if they argued from time to time Puff was like a big brother to Usher. Third, Usher had become famous thanks to his talent and all the talent shows he had participated in and won.
As one can see Usher was an interesting person to read about.
