Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter Usher will be a guest on our midnight Larry King Live tonight.
Usher's commentary is an LKL Blog exclusive!
This Inauguration is one of the most important historic moments we have seen in American History. It reflects strength and unity.
It's extremely important because I think we elected the right man for the job. I've been an admirer of Barack Obama since 2005 when my charity reached out to his office for help when we were researching education issues. And in 2007 I sat down with him to discuss some of the issues plaguing our Country.
I can say first hand that this is a man who has never changed – his answers then are the same answers now.
Getting him elected was just Step One, now it's up to all Americans to make sure "our" new President is successful. He was right when he said he couldn't do it alone, no one can.
President Obama won't be able to turn our country around without our support. That's why I'm challenging everyone to help our new President through service. Serve at your community food bank, serve at a hospital or homeless shelter...but we have to serve!
