  John Legend - booking information

(brother of Vaughn Anthony)

R&B artist, John Legend, was born John Stephens. He was given the name Legend by a friend from Chicago who thought he sounded like an old school artist.

  John Legend - booking information  Philly-bred singer, songwriter and pianist John Legend was born into a musical family that was active in the church. With such influence, the young Legend embraced gospel, classic soul and hip-hop. The fusion of all three currently epitomizes his unique sound.

  John Legend - booking information  His family moved from Ohio to Pennsylvania when he was a child. He was playing the piano and singing in the church choir from an early age. He performed and recorded with various groups as well as a solo artist while attending college at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and subsequently became seriously involved with the area's neo-soul explosion of the late 1990s.

The musical influences of his childhood included classic Soul and Gospel singers ranging from Stevie Wonder and Al Green to Shirley Caesar and Edwin Hawkins, as well as more modern acts like Jodeci and Boyz II Men. He served as musical director at Bethel A.M.E. church for nearly a decade during high school and college.

Before becoming a mainstream artist, John Legend often hit the nightclub circuit in New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, performing as an independent artist and distributing live LPs such as "Live at SOB's". It was John Legend's roommate and former classmate at Penn, Devon Harris, who introduced Legend to his cousin and then up-and-coming hip hop artist Kanye West.

  John Legend - booking information  Since that meeting, John Legend and Kanye West have worked closely together. Legend is also signed to West's label, "G.O.O.D. Music" label. Legend sang many of the melodic hooks on West’s demo, which would eventually become the Grammy Award winning "The College Dropout" and West provided rhythm tracks for Legend’s demo, which would evolve into "Get Lifted."

"Get Lifted" was his major label debut album, released by Columbia Records in 2004, although he had already amassed numerous credits, including session work with Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson, Talib Kweli, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, the Black Eyed Peas and Lauryn Hill.

 John Legend contributed to fellow G.O.O.D artist Common's LP, "Be."

Legend's most important musical association has been with Kanye West. In 2003 Kanye West signed John Legend as the first artist to his production company, KonMan Entertainment, leading to the deal with with Columbia Records.

John Legend made his debut film appearance in Loverboy with Kevin Bacon and Marisa Tomei.

Asked to describe his style, John Legend says, "It's very soulful, rooted in gospel but with hip-hop beats and unique, witty lyrics, more 'major' than 'minor', more of a 'feel good,' upbeat sound."
