Usher went ahead to dedicate his Hollywood Walk of Fame honor to all his fans around the world. In his words: “It’s Because of You That This Shining Star is Here.
“It is because of you guys that I have this moment. It is because of you that this shining star will be here and I leave it up to you – it’s your responsibility – to come down here every chance you get to shine my star,” he joked in front of a cheering crowd.
“Hey listen, that’s the smallest thing that I could ask of you right now, especially given the fact that I’m going to be walked on.”
