On Monday, the DJ Got Us Fallin in Love singer took to his Instagram to announce that his grandmother Ernestine Carter has left for the heavenly abode. He penned a heartfelt tribute for her on the social media platform Instagram.
Usher started the caption by saying, “I LOVE U MORE It’s taken me a few days to come to grips with the fact that my Grandma Tina is no longer with me. I’m praying for clarity and strength for all whom relied on her.”
The My Boo hitmaker further added, “Her daily devotion was to help those in need and she did just that. It was her life’s work. She was truly a prayer warrior for me and so many others. I feel a bit lost right now.”
The musician went on to say, “Part of me is trying to be strong, for others…. Her belief was that GOD always has a plan…I’m trying to understand that right now. The other half of me continues to break silently. We were just laughing days ago … I really thought we had more time.”
He continued, “When I was lost, she was always there when I called on her, no matter the hour or how long it took. When I needed the perfect Bible verse to suit the reality of what I was facing at the time…she’s provided it. GOD answered her prayers…and now I know he has called her home. I just wasn’t ready.”

She saw something else…and was there to remind me of purpose, and that no matter what I was facing. I love u more, she would say.”
