Usher receives honorary Doctor of Music Degree


R&B superstar Usher Raymond took to social media to announce that he is now a doctor after receiving an honorary โ€œDoctor of Music Degreeโ€ from Berklee College.

The 44-year-old dad of four took to Instagram to share the news with followers.

He captioned the post: โ€œThey call me D-o-c-t-o-r R-a-y-m-o-n-d ๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐ŸพThank you @berkleecollege for honouring me and presenting me with a Doctor of Music degree. Iโ€™m so grateful for this opportunity to share a message to the next generation of artists, producers, vocalists, arrangers, dancers and more.

โ€œBe brave and I hope your spark never goes away.โ€


In his acceptance speech, he said: โ€œNetworking is what brought me here today. It wasnโ€™t teachers or credited experts; that doesnโ€™t discredit what this environment is or what the environment is that I grew up in, It just means that I managed to do something significant based on my passion; that makes me not only a student but a master of my trade.โ€
