Book John Legend for a Private Performance
John Legend dwelled in the background for several years before he launched his multi-pronged sneak attack on the entertainment industry. Shortly after he got his first break by playing the piano on Lauryn Hill’s Top 40 hit “Everything Is Everything” (1999), the singer and songwriter contributed to recordings by the likes of Jay-Z and Janet Jackson, secured a major-label deal via Kanye West, and made his proper debut with Get Lifted (2004). The album made Legend a multi-platinum, Grammy-winning musician.
In 2004, Legend’s Get Lifted was already platinum before the April 2005 release of its biggest single “Ordinary People,” a number 24 pop hit produced and written with will.i.am. Get Lifted led to Legend’s first three Grammy wins including Best R&B Album, Best New Artist, and Best R&B Male Vocal Performance (for “Ordinary People”).
In 2013 his album Love in the Future generated Legend’s first number one pop hit, “All of Me”, among the five best-selling singles of the year and certified eight-times platinum. Near the end of the year, he released the single “Glory.” Written and recorded with Common for the soundtrack of the Ava DuVernay-directed film Selma, the song won the Academy Award early in 2015 for Best Original Song, and in early 2016 won a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
Between those accolades, Legend scored his biggest smash as a featured artist with “Like I’m Gonna Lose You,” a multi-platinum, number eight pop hit headlined by Meghan Trainor.
Legend often performs solo on the piano, with an optional small band on stage.
