Usher stopped by the Ellen Degeneres show to do a little dancing and talk with Ellen about his six month old son, Usher Raymond V and wife Tameka.
“He is my reason for living,” the singer tells Ellen. “[Aside from] my wife, obviously, for helping me have him.”
Usher talks more about his wife and what being a father has done for him as an African American.

“She’s built up … the foundation of who I am. I want to see more men standing with their women. I want to see more men be open and honest about where they are in life.”
In regards to becoming a father, Usher adds,
“As an African-American, to be there for my child is so important when there are so many young African-American kids without their fathers. I just want him to grow up to be as wise as he can possibly be, kind and open hearted. [Fatherhood] changes everything about me.”
