Usher explains why he opted out of the One Love Manchester concert

It was only in the aftermath of the One Love concert when people began to question, 'Where was Usher'?

The singer was on the line up to play along side Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Robbie Williams, Laim Gallagher, Coldplay and Take That.

However, he was a no-show at the gig and Twitter was quite confused as to where he was.

Well, Usher took to social media last night to explain his reason, and it's pretty legit.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote: "So happy to see that last night's concert in Manchester proved that love always prevails.

"I would have loved to be there but it was my son's first day at Camp Kudzu, one of the few summer camps for kids living with diabetes.

"This was an important day for him and for myself as a proud father. Stay strong UK."

The concert raised more than 9 million in the space of a few hours. Over 10.9 million people tuned in on BBC1 alone, however it was also streaming on Twitter and numerous other sites, with reports suggesting it was the most-watched concert ever to take place.
