John Legend (born John Stephens, 28.12.1978) John Legend is an American soul musician. He is a pianist, songwriter and singer and is a Grammy Award winner.
Childhood: John Legend was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. At the age of three, his grandmother started to teach him to play the piano, in a gospel style.

Legend has collaborated with a number of Kanye's protégés, including the rapper Common, and Fort Minor, both of whom are his label-mates. He has also collaborated with The Black Eyed Peas and Michael Jackson.
In July 2007, John Legend appeared at the London leg of the Live Earth concert, where he performed his track 'Ordinary People'. That same month, Legend spent a day folding laundry at Tide's Clean Start Mobile Laundromat, helping the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Legend's second album was Once Again. The debut single to be released from the album was 'Save Room'. The single featured production credits for will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas, as well as Kanye West and Raphael Saadiq.
In April 2008, John Legend returned to Pennsylvania University in support of the Barack Obama Presidential campaign.
