Ohio-born John Legend is a critically acclaimed, multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter who’s sold an impressive seven million albums worldwide. His work has garnered him nine Grammy Awards, three Soul Train Awards, the BET Award for Best New Artist and the special Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

A graduate of University of Pennsylvania, Legend was introduced to Lauryn Hill, who hired him to play piano on her track “Everything Is Everything,” while in college. Afterwards, Legend met Kanye West, who signed Legend to his G.O.O.D. Music imprint. Legend’s debut album, Get Lifted, was released in December 2004. The critically-acclaimed album spawned the artist’s first hit single, “Ordinary People,” and scored Legend multiple Grammy Awards in 2006.

The follow up was 2006’s platinum-selling Once Again, which brought Legend another Grammy. Legend’s most recent effort was his 2010 collaboration with the Roots, Wake Up, which won the Grammy for Best R&B Album. Throughout his career, Legend has worked to make a difference in the lives of others. He’s launched initiatives that focus on education as a key to break the cycle of poverty; received numerous awards, including The 2010 BET Humanitarian of the Year award; and sits on the boards of The Education Equality Project, Teach for America, Stand for Children and the Harlem Village Academies and co-chairs the Harlem Village Academies’ National Leadership Board.
