Slideshow: Usher visits Tyner Academy in Chattanooga Monday
Pop superstar and Chattanooga native Usher made a surprise stop at Tyner Middle School in Chattanooga Monday morning.
Usher talked to kids about finding their passion and celebrating their African American heritage as part of black history month.
He was also there in part to honor his late grandmother, Nancy Lackey.
Even though his media team asked that photos not be taken, many who were there couldn't resist.
This is the second time in the last year that Usher has paid Chattanooga a visit. Back in September, he performed at a concert to benefit local students.
