Happy birthday, Usher! The performer, who recently took to the stage at last month's Fashion Rocks show in Brooklyn, rings in his 36th birthday today. It's been a long and successful road for the Dallas native, who not only boasts a string of hit songs and two Grammy awards, but also enjoyed a stint as a judge on The Voice earlier this year. And in 2015 we'll see his portrayal of boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in the biopic Hands of Stone (he co-stars with Robert De Niro and Ellen Barkin). We can't wait to watch!
