Summary
The lives and careers of two R & B legends are explored in this film. Born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Usher was discovered by "L.A." Reid at the age of 14 at a local talent show, and then signed to LaFace Records. He's been on the fast track ever since. Known for his sexually explicit lyrics, smooth talking, and cutting-edge hip-hop beats, R. Kelly has been making headlines for more than a decade now, but not all of them good. An accomplished songwriter, producer, and remixer, R. Kelly has written and produced for Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Janet Jackson, and Mary J. Blige to name a few.
