After a few months it turned out that people basically know me as “John Legend”, and almost no one knows my real name. And I had to come to terms. Especially since the last episode of American Idol (reality show) was a guy named John Stephens is so red and curly. I don’t want people to associate me with him.” The john legend show will discover all the perfection that he has.
Some Personal Talks
John was born in a typical American town, Springfield, Ohio (Springfield, Ohio) December 28, 1978. The second child in a large poor family, John has been addicted to music since childhood. The father of the future Legends was a drummer, his mother a soloist and leader of the church choir. John’s grandmother served as a church organist in Philadelphia. As is usual in African American families, jazz, blues, gospel and soul always sounded in John’s house. At the age of 4, Legend began to learn to play the piano, and from the age of 11 he began to sing in the Unity For Christ church choir and compose simple choral compositions. His musical talent helped him a lot in his studies. The teachers were condescending to the young talent, especially since Legend was the headman of his class. Being two years younger than classmates, he graduated at age 16 and received the title of “King of the Prom.”
In 1995, John entered the National University of Pennsylvania, where he continued to study music in his spare time. Shortly after admission, the aspiring musician joins the Counterparts student vocal ensemble, with whom he occasionally performs at various student events and talent contests. At the same time, John became the pianist and leader of the church choir at Bathel AME Church. After graduating from university, he receives the specialty of “strategic management consultant.” Wanting to try himself in this area, Legend goes to work in Boston, but student acquaintances do not allow him to stay too long in Massachusetts.
“I was 19 when I first took part in a serious professional album. My old friend Tara Michel worked as a backing vocalist with Lauryn Hill they went to school in Jersey together. When I graduated from college, they were just recording the debut album “Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill”. Loreen was looking for a good pianist for the song “Everything Is Everything” and Tara advised me. I recorded with them and Loren was satisfied. Then she invited me to participate in her concert ensemble – and I was ready to drop out of college to send sya tour, but at the last moment Lorin changed my mind. I think now she regrets it. “
