In addition to a performance from Kendrick Lamar, Usher helped celebrate LeBron James’ homecoming in Cleveland on Thursday. The R&B crooner, who is part owner of the Cavs, took the court at Quicken Loans Arena to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before his team lost to the Knicks.
As Justin Bieber, Spike Lee, and David Beckham looked on, he belted out a soaring rendition of the patriotic tune while the players watched from the sidelines. Towards the end, the entire arena started singing along, making for an emotional moment.
Usher will head to Montreal tomorrow to kick off his “UR Experience” tour with August Alsina.
