A well-deserved honor!

We've just learned that Usher is getting honored by the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis on November 12th.

He'll be presented with the museum's Philanthropy Freedom Award, for the work that's been done by his New Look Foundation, which has "raised financial resources for Hurricane Katrina victims and issued a 'call to action' for Haiti relief in 2010."

Other Freedom Award winners who will be honored alongside Usher include Dr. Bill Frist, actress Cicely Tyson, and former NBA player Bill Russell.

Congratulations, Usher! And thanks for being a positive influence on the world!

    The Civil Rights does NOT need another WOMANIZER associated with them–MLK, JR. was more than enough!
