Usher Says Super Bowl Halftime Show Will Be ‘The Hardest’ & Most Celebratory 13 Minutes Of His Life

Usher is gearing up for the gig of a lifetime! The music superstar spoke to Access Hollywood guest correspondent Tunde Oyeneyin about his preparations for his performance at the Super Bowl LVIII and his “amazing journey” from his Las Vegas residency to the halftime show. “Thirty years of a career is the preparation for that moment. I don’t know if it was too soon or if it was soon enough, but I’m here. I have it … It’s the hardest 13 minutes of my life, but should be the most celebrated,” he said. Usher, who is a paid spokesperson for Sanofi, also spoke about his partnership with the organization to create The 1 Pledge movement for Type 1 Diabetes early screenings. The cause is close to Usher’s heart, as he has a child with Type 1 Diabetes, and the singer shared details about how the experience has shaped him as a father. Find out more on The 1 Pledge’s website.
