John Legend is a rare multi-talent: he has a voice containing a stunning range, writes excellent songs both for himself and others, and plays the piano beautifully as well. He made his debut with 2004’s Get Lifted; since then, he has sold over seven million albums and received no less than nine Grammy Awards. Together with The Roots he made the album Wake Up in 2010, on which he displayed a social responsibility. Legend also launched the Show Me Campaign, an initiative that focuses on education as a key to break the cycle of poverty. With his hit single All Of Me, which was released last year, Legend broke worldwide sales records. This year, he and rapper Common received an Academy Award for their song Glory, off the soundtrack for the movie Selma.
