Usher Performs Hit After Hit for NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk’ Concert

Usher had the whole room grooving for his new installment of NPR’s “Tiny Desk” concert series, in which he performed a slew of hits for the 24-minute video.

His jam-packed band featured vocalists Eric Bellinger and Vedo, bassist, Dmitry Gorodetsky, trombonist Lemar Guillary, trumpeter Brandyn Phllips, saxophonist Jay Flat, keyboardist Darek Cobbs, guitarist Erick Walls and drummer Ryan Carr.

I’m hoping to just really have fun today. This office party that we’re having,” Usher opened the performance, before delivering a smooth rendition of “You Make Me Wanna…”

The star also ran through renditions of hits like “U Don’t Have to Call,” “Nice & Slow,” “Confessions Part II,” “My Way” and more.

I was able to really be reflective and find out what things matter and really have some true, honest, deep conversations with people and myself, to take some ownership of some of where my life has gone and some of the things that I’ve come through.
