One-Foot Usher performs at Global Citizen Earth Day(Photos)

A daylong Earth Day concert had R&B star Usher dancing on crutches Saturday on the National Mall to rally thousands for political action to confront climate change and poverty.

After suffering a fracture in his foot, Usher was in a cast but drew big cheers when he got his dance on anyway. He sang his hits, including “Yeah!” and “OMG” and also teamed up with Common to sing the beginning of “Glory,” the Oscar-winning song from the movie “Selma.”

 “To end poverty, it starts, in my opinion, with an education about it,” Usher told the crowd. “I want you to go and investigate for yourself so that you can really understand what’s going on.” See more photos below….
