International R&B star Usher will hold a concert in Korea for the first time ever in July, according to concert promoter Hyundai Card.

Usher will be performing in Korea for the "Hyundai Super Concert X - Usher" to be held on July 3 at the Jamsil Indoor Stadium in Seoul.

He will be singing his past mega hits and new songs from his recent sixth album "Raymond v. Raymond" while showing various repertoires for the audience.

An associate from Hyundai Card stated, "Usher is one of the best male pop stars and is an influential artist to some of the local singers. We chose him because he is an unstoppable force in the music industry."

Usher, whose full name is Usher Raymond IV, rose to fame in the 1990s with his album "My Way" and "8701." His first album "My Way" became certified platinum 6 times and "8701" 4 times.

He won the Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for his songs "You Make Me Wanna," "U Remind Me" and "U Don't Have to Call." He has also topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart with other singles such as "My Boo," "Caught Up" and "Yeah!"
