His son Usher Raymond V got caught in a pool drain at the singer's Atlanta home.

A year later, he received two People's Choice Awards and three Grammy Awards (best contemporary R&B album, best R&B performance by a duo or group and best rap/sung collaboration).) and best male R&B performance ("There Goes My Baby").

In all, the singer has won 17 Billboard Music Awards; eight Soul Train Music Awards; five Grammys; and nine awards from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, among other honors.

Usher also stays busy with his charity, New Look Foundation, which was founded in 1999 and works to provide funding for children in foster care and service programs; holds conferences and camps for at-risk youth; and, ultimately, works to promote leadership skills for kids in impoverished communities.

For his work with the nonprofit, Usher has received honors from such groups as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Trumpet Foundation and National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

He also became known for incorporating sexual undertones into his songs, performances and music videos.

Usher released (2004), which was extremely well-received.

After being rushed to a local hospital, Glover was declared brain dead by doctors.
