Atlanta’s movers and shakers met at the St. Regis hotel today for an event celebrating Usher’s New Look foundation. Though it was all flashbulbs, rappers, and rock stars on what Usher called “the floral carpet,” the entertainer proved to me he was more than just a pretty face and a slick linen suit.
Well, we all know Justin Bieber got his start thanks to Atlanta's star-grooming machine. But the great grandkids of Captain Georg von Trapp? Turns out Sophi, 24, Melanie, 22, Amanda, 21, and August, 18—What? no Liesl or Friedrich?—have been in town working with vocal coach Jan Smith, whose client roster includes the Biebs, Usher, and Rob Thomas. Although we were hoping for goatherds and edelweiss, the video of the von Trapps and another family band, Alpharetta's Von Grey, doing the folky "Crying Bloody Water" in studio is kind of adorable.
