Usher Wine

R&B singer Usher Raymond IV, 28, has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide, and earned five Grammy awards. Last year, the Atlanta-based star made his Broadway debut as slick lawyer Billy Flynn in the musical Chicago. He's appeared in dozens of TV shows, including 7th Heaven, Saturday Night Live and American Dreams, and such movies as She's All That (1999) and Texas Rangers (2001). In 2005, he launched Usher's New Look, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching children and teens about the business side of the sports and entertainment industries.

The singer is also delving into the wine world. In December, Usher opened his own franchise of the Grape wine bar in Atlanta's Inman Park neighborhood, and he's hoping to open more in New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, and overseas, in Tokyo, Shanghai and several South American cities.

What's up next for a very busy and multitalented Usher? Can you say Usher Pinot Nior...
