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. At seven, he was involved in the church choir as well as taking classical music lessons.

During his time at University, Legend was in Counterparts, a jazz / pop a capella group. He was the President and Musical Director of the group.
Pursuing his love of music after leaving university, Legend played in the New York nightclub circuit, as well as in Philadelphia and Washington D.C.
The Big Break: John Legend was introduced to Kanye West by Kanye's cousin, who happened to be Legend's roommate. Eventually, Legend became the first signing to West's G.O.O.D. Music label. John Legend sang many of the hooks on West's College Dropout album and to return the favour, West supplied a number of the rhythm tracks for John's demo tapes.
John Legend's debut album, Get Lifted was eventually released on G.O.O.D. Music.
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.

In April 2008, John Legend returned to Pennsylvania University in support of the Barack Obama Presidential campaign.
Legend's third album, Evolver has been given a release date of October 2008 and features the rapper Andre 3000 of OutKast.
John Legend will ''always'' be grateful for Kanye West for having his ''music back'',e specially at the start of his career when he was rejected from other record labels.
The 37-year-old singer believes he wouldn't have landed a record deal without the assistance of the 'Famous' rapper, because he was rejected by ''every major record label'' when he was trying to break into the music industry, and Legend is thankful for his support throughout his music career.
Speaking on the Honda Stage at the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles on Friday (02.12.16), he said: ''I don't know if I would've gotten signed to Columbia and Sony without [Kanye's] help and his work with me on my music back then. So I'll always be grateful to him for that.
