Quoted: Usher on emotional concert experiences
In 2009, Usher has performed some of the most emotional gigs of his life: President Obama's inauguration in January and Michael Jackson's memorial service in July. The R&B singer was in town on Sunday for the filming of TNT's "Christmas in Washington" concert special and Click Track asked him how the two experiences compare:
"There's no comparison at all. They are two very different emotions: losing an icon and embracing an icon -- or an individual who's set to lead us to better times. They don't bear any comparison. But it's an honor to be considered to be a part of these kinds of events. It kind of plays to the dichotomy of who I am as an entertainer. To be able to play an event like ["Christmas in Washington"], or rock a stadium, and sing at a memorial, and then sing at the Lincoln Memorial -- they kind of make up who I am as an entertainer, as an individual, and as a man."
"Christmas in Washington" airs on TNT on Sunday at 8 p.m.
