Usher Explains His Absence From One Manchester Benefit Concert

June 6, 2017

We thought we’d see Usher perform at the One Love Manchester benefit concert with Ariana Grande this past Sunday, but Usher wasn’t in attendance and now he’s explaining his absence.

Usher had parent duties to attend to.  His son had his first day of camp.  It’s actually one of the few summer camps for kids living with diabetes.  Usher did however Tweet out his love and regards for the UK.

So happy to see that last night's concert in Manchester proved that love always prevails. I would have loved to be there but It was my son's first day at Camp Kudzu, one of the few summer camps for kids living with diabetes. This was an important day for him and for myself as a proud father. Stay strong UK.
