An Atlanta man has pleaded not guilty to all charges in the boating accident that lead to the death last summer of Usher's 11-year-old former stepson, The Associated Press reports. A lawyer for Jeffrey Simon Hubbard entered the plea on charges of first-degree homicide by vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft, boat traffic violation and serious injury by vessel.

The incident occurred last July when Kile Glover – the son of Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, whom he divorced in 2009 – was vacationing with his father at Georgia's Lake Lanier. Hubbard reportedly crashed his jet ski into an inner tube the boy was riding in, striking him in the head and leaving him unconscious.

Glover was declared brain dead after the incident, and was taken off life support a few weeks later after doctors determined his injuries were too severe to overcome.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
