Patrons at SXSW got a major surprise last evening when Usher hit the stage for an unexpected showcase at Fader Fort. Backed by The Afghan Whigs, the R&B superstar performed a string of his hits, including “Climax”, “OMG”, “Bad Girl” and “U Got it Bad”, for the Texan crowd.
Yet, Usher took the spotlight off himself for just a moment as he sent best wishes to good friend Lil Wayne. The rapper was supposedly hospitalised yesterday following numerous seizures and the exact details of his condition have yet to be revealed following conflicting reports.
“One of my fellow artists and good friend, Lil Wayne, is going through a real hard time right now” stated Usher. “I just want to send a lot of positive attitude about his state and a lot of positive energy out there right now. Can you guys make some noise for Lil Wayne one time?”
Isn’t Usher seriously the best friend ever? Watch footage of Usher’s SXSW show below:
