Usher Rings NYSE Bell for MTV’s 30th Birthday

Usher rose early Monday morning and headed down to Wall Street to celebrate MTV’s 30th birthday. The R&B singer joined MTV Networks’ President Van Toffler to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange in honor of the music network’s milestone.

“I’m really happy to not only be a part of the Stock Exchange, but MTV who has remained relevant for over the last 30 years and will continue to evolve because they are open and really give us that outlet, not only to be musical but also to be creative,” said Usher, who was only two years old when the network launched.

Usher has been in the studio with Rico Love working on his next album.
