Alexander invited Bryant Reid, an A&R representative from La Face Records to see Usher perform on Star Search.Following the performance, he arranged an audition for Usher with L. Reid, the co-founder of La Face; Reid signed Usher on the spot to a contract with the record company after singing Boyz II Men hit record "End of the Road".Again the La Face had their reservations about signing Usher because the album wasn't as successful as they anticipated.
