After being spotted by a LaFace record executive at a talent show in his hometown of Atlanta, it took no time for Usher Raymond's career to take off. The 14-year-old auditioned for LaFace co-founder L.A. Reid, who signed the gospel choirboy to a recording contract. The Grammy-winning singer and actor's debut album, co-executive produced by Sean "Puffy" Combs, dropped in 1994. After graduating from high school in 1997, Usher released his sophomore album, My Way, which firmly established him as one of R&B's hottest artists, and also made him a crossover sensation for years to come. ~ Lynda Lane
