BELOW FOR CHANCE TO WIN!
John Legend is a remarkably talented young artist. Reviewers rave about John, calling him a "musical prodigy" and "a breath of fresh air" after witnessing his "powerful, passionate voice" and "gifted songwriting." It's no wonder that Roc-a-Fella rapper and super-producer Kanye West chose John as the first artist to sign to his new production company, KonMan Entertainment. West saw in John the embodiment of the musical sound he has made popular in such classics as Jay-Z's The Blueprint and Scarface's The Fix. John's music seamlessly blends old school and new, with a vintage soul sound driven by cutting edge hip-hop beats.
At only 24 years old, John (née John Stephens) is already an experienced performer and songwriter. As he croons in the opening verse of "Soul Joint"--"It all began rockin' with the church band, back when I was five years old." Born and raised in an exceptionally musical family in Springfield, Ohio, he began playing both classical and gospel piano at age 4, and was undeniably destined for musical success. Singing solos in the choir at 6 and playing the piano regularly in the church by 10, John continued to write and perform his own material, direct choirs, and win local talent shows throughout his teenage years.
John left Ohio at age
16, and, after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania at age 20, his
musical journey brought him to New York City, where he has been giving electrifying
performances of his original material up and down the East Coast and selling
thousands of copies of his independently distributed CDs. With his new alignment
with Kanye West, a robust catalog of outstanding recorded material, a fan
base of thousands, and regional buzz reaching a crescendo, there is no question
that John is ready for a global audience.
