Traveling north on Northside Dr. on my way to work this morning, I was taken aback by a billboard-sized baby photo of Usher smiling back at me near the MLK Jr. Dr. intersection. Turns out he's the latest celebrity Boys & Girls Clubs' alumnus enlisted in its "BE GREAT" campaign.
The billboard was unveiled yesterday, according to the press release:
Usher joins the likes of Denzel Washington, Shaquille ONeal, Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Muhammad Ali as part of BGCAs new advocacy campaign, featuring successful Boys & Girls Club kids and encouraging every American to help young people BE GREAT.

Say what you will, but it beats another malt liquor ad any day.
