Usher recently performed on NPR's Tiny Desk concert series with his band and entertained with a set list of his classic songs as part of Black Music Month celebrations on the YouTube channel.

The 'Yeah!' singer was joined by Eric Bellinger and Vedo as he sang six songs: 'You Make Me Wanna', 'Superstar', 'U Don’t Have to Call', 'Nice & Slow', 'Confessions Part II', and 'My Way'.
