Usher meets with "Generation S"

At the start of the ServiceNation event today, famed R&B artist Usher met with "100 Exceptional Young Leaders" who gathered at Columbia University to discuss their ideas for the future of community service. Usher has been named ServiceNation's "Youth Chair," and he has deemed the country's youth "Generation S" for their service potential. Along with a list of musical accomplishments, Usher founded "New Look," a non-profit organization dedicated to providing youth from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds the opportunity to learn about the business behind sports and entertainment."Set a platform. Set a vision. I'll be the voice. I make that promise to you today," he told the group at the conclusion of the meeting.
