Usher headlined the “Bigger Than Words” webcast at Scholastic headquarters. The Grammy Award-winning recording artist (pictured, via) took part to support the “Open a World of Possible” literacy initiative.
During the event, one kid in the audience asked Usher who he would recruit for a book club. The entertainer named actor Morgan Freeman, actress Scarlett Johansson, media mogul Oprah Winfrey, and cartoon superstar SpongeBob SquarePants.
Usher later sat for an interview with Vulture and confessed that he forgot to mention that he also wants Sean Connery to be a member of his book club. Follow this link to watch a full replay of the webcast.
