Finally Usher has confirmed what we already knew ? he?s engaged to his friend, partner, and manager,?Grace Miguel.?He revealed while he accepted his Musical Arts Award at The BET Honors on Feb. 23. He said;
?We lack motivation, we lack role models. I was one of those kids who didn?t have a father, but my heavenly father was always there,? Usher said during his raw and moving speech.
Usher also took time to?thank his mentors:?Jermaine Dupri,?Diddy,?and?L.A. Reid, who helped him achieve?success. ?You do what you love until somebody honors you,? he said. He then made sure he thanked?his fianc?e, 44, before leaving the stage. It was so cute. Plus, it was the first time Usher acknowledged his engagement!
