Usher: Wedding Singer? Yes, If One Mom Has Her Way

After Usher's son, Usher Raymond V, nearly drowned in a swimming pool recently, the mother of one of the men who rescued the little boy is requesting a unique thank-you gift from the singer.

TMZ reports that the mother of Ben Crews, an audio-video worker, wants Usher to sing at her son's wedding this month. Usher has yet to respond to the request, but we hope he says "yes!"

We'd like to urge Usher not to take a cue from Michael Bublé, who last month announced that he hates being asked to sing at weddings. "People know how successful I am, but they don’t give a s**t, they don’t," Bublé said. “The best part is that people are so cute about it. They will literally look at you and they will be so sincere and say, ‘Listen, my daughter is getting married in August and if you could come, honestly your whole band, they will eat and drink for free.’ And I’m like, ‘OK I’ll be there,’ but of course, I will never be there!"

That's harsh, Bublé.
