While we tend to see a lot of stars coming and going in the music industry, with many of them only spending a short amount of time in the business, there are those who have enjoyed a long and successful career in music. Usher has been in the music industry for 23 years now and, while performing a recent gig at the O2, Usher took the time to thank his fans for their constant support.
Usher told the crowd, "You know, it's been some time since I've been back here at The O2 and I mean, I feel this way most of the time, but I sense that no matter how many days, weeks, months, years pass - we always stay connected. And for that discipline or that support I thank you guys so much because this 23 year career of mine has."
He added, "Yeah I've been here for a minute ... But within 22/23 years I've made a lot of different transitions, I've been through a lot of things. I've had some ups, I've had some downs, I've had some very tumultuous times and the things that help me to make it through that is your love and your support and I just want to take two seconds to thank you, thank you for everything."
Usher put on a fantastic show on the night, giving all fans a little bit of everything. As well as playing some of his classic hits, Usher moved on to some of his new material, showing fans what they can expect from him in the coming year or so.
