Usher launches first annual World Leadership Awards

HollywoodNews.com: Usher has already introduced the world to teen sensation Justin Bieber, and now he’s going to do some good for the world. His New Look Foundation will hold its first annual World Leadership Awards, which will bring together heads of state, civic and community leaders, philanthropists, and celebrities to honor eight individuals for their commitment to supporting youth as leaders and change agents of some of our world’s most pressing issues.

Awards will include the Youth Catalyst Award, the Global Youth Leadership Award, the Global Ambassador of Youth Award and others. Usher will perform live.

The event is co-chaired by John Rice, Vice Chairman of GE, and his wife, New Look Foundation Board Member Cammie Rice. Committee members include Senator Samuel and Colleen Nunn, former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, Governor Sonny Perdue, and Congressman John Lewis. Among the sponsors are: Coca-Cola, GE, Turner Broadcasting, Georgia Power, Grey Goose, AEG Live, JP Morgan, Penske Automotive, Elizabeth Arden and Sony BMG.

According to John and Cammie Rice, “The New Look Foundation does extraordinary work across the country by inspiring young people and providing them with opportunities to lead change in their communities. We look forward to further positioning Atlanta as a global and internationally known city by bringing this unique event here.”

The World Leadership Awards will take place on Friday, August 6th at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta.

Tickets to the Awards including the performance by Usher are available to the public through Ticketmaster or at the Bank of North Georgia Box Office at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
