Usher Accepts President’s Prize at 2024 NAACP Image Awards

Usher was a special honoree at this weekend’s 2024 NAACP Image Awards.

On Saturday, the “Coming Home to You” musician, 45, was presented with the President’s Award — a special honor that is awarded to celebrities and other figures “in recognition of special achievement and distinguished public service.”

After NAACP president and CEO Derrick Johnson presented the pop star with his award, Usher kissed his wife Jenn Goicoechea in the audience, before making his way on stage.

Wearing an all-black ensemble, Usher gladly accepted the award, thanking the women in his life for making him who he is today.

“I’m so overwhelmed with appreciation for my entire family, without them I wouldn’t be able to do this,” Usher said. “They say behind or beside or with every strong man is a stronger woman, and for that I thank my mother and my beautiful wife Jennifer for holding me down. My kids, I love you guys so, so much.”
