John Legend

American singer-songwritter

John Roger Stephens (born December 28, 1978), known professionally as John Legend, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, film producer, and philanthropist.

Prior to the release of Legend’s debut album Get Lifted (2004), he collaborated with already-established artists and signed to Kanye West’s GOOD Music.

Legend has sung on Jay-Z’s “Encore”, Alicia Keys’s “You Don’t Know My Name”, Dilated Peoples’ “This Way”, Slum Village’s “Selfish”, Fort Minor’s “High Road”, and played piano on Lauryn Hill’s “Everything Is Everything”. Legend’s single “All of Me” from his fourth studio album Love in the Future (2013) was a Billboard Hot 100 number-one hit. In 2007, Legend received the Hal David Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Legend won the Academy Award for Best Original Song and Golden Globe Award in 2015 for co-writing the song “Glory” from the film Selma. He has also won eleven Grammy Awards. In 2017, Legend received a Tony Award for co-producing Jitney for the Broadway stage. In 2018, Legend portrayed Jesus Christ in NBC’s adaptation of the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar.

Relive some John Legend classics including ‘Ordinary People’ and ‘Number One’ as well as discovering some of his lesser known tracks.

John Legend is the man to work with since the success of his beautiful 2014 piano ballad ‘All Of Me,’ which was the UK’s third best-selling single last year and the USA’s second.
But with five studio albums and decades of experience in the music industry behind him, before we get carried away with what the ‘Love In The Future’ singer will release next, let’s take a step back and appreciate 15 of the biggest, most emotional songs John Legend has already given us.

John Legend – ‘Ordinary People’

Before ‘All Of Me,’ ‘Ordinary People’ was certainly the song Legend was most famous for. Written by himself and Will.I.Am for his debut ‘Get Lifted’ album, released in 2004, the beautiful piano ballad won a Grammy award for ‘Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.’

John Legend – ‘Used To Love You’

Let us take you back to 2004 when no one knew the name John Legend and he dropped his first ever single, co-produced by a certain someone called Kanye West, ‘Used To Love U.’ The song had moderate chart success, giving him a taster of bigger things to come.

John Legend Feat. Andre 3000 – ‘Green Light’

When John Legend and Andre 3000 are both credited on the same song you know it’s going to be a big one. Back in 2008 they hooked up for an unusually upbeat song from Legend that kept its r&b soul.

John Legend – ‘Number one’

Finally:- Everyone’s paying tribute to the mothers they love for Mother’s Day — and John Legend is certainly no exception.

The singer posted a loving message to his wife Chrissy Teigen on Instagram to commemorate the holiday.

“Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful wife!,” he wrote. “It’s been a year that tested you in so many ways but you’ve come through stronger, wiser, happier and a better mother than ever.”
