Who is John Legend?

Born John Roger Stephens on the 28th December 1978, in Springfield, Ohio USA, he is musician, songwriter, singer and record producer, best known to the world for his song “All of Me”, which is dedicated to his wife Chrissy Teigen. To speak of his achievements, John won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2015 for the song “Glory”, and a Golden Globe Award for the same song. So far, John has released five studio albums, including his debut album “Get Lifted”, which achieved double platinum status in the US and topped the US R&B chart.

John Legend Wiki: Early Life, Parents, Siblings, and Education

John was born to Phillis Elaine, who was a seamstress, and her husband Ronald Lamar Stephens, who worked at International Harvester; he wasn’t alone growing up as he has three siblings. From an early age, John was drawn to the performing arts, as he was only four when he made his first performance as a singer in the church choir, then started playing the piano when he was only seven years old. He went to Springfield North High School, and upon matriculation enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania, despite receiving offers from Harvard and Georgetown Universities, and Morehouse College. He studied English with a focus on African-American literature, graduating in 1999.

Career Beginnings

It was during his college days that John became more interested in music, and was a member of the jazz and pop a cappella group named Counterparts. He also started performing on his own around Philadelphia, ultimately expanding his fan base to Boston, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta as well. Once he was out of college, John began recording his own music and selling demo tapes at his shows. However, he still had to find a ‘real’ job in order to support himself, and began working as a management consultant for the Boston Consulting Group, but that didn’t stop him from making his own music. He began offering his demo tapes to record labels, and in 2001 he was introduced to Kanye West through Devo Springsteen, and had the job to sing during the hooks of Kanye’s music, and after liking what he heard, West signed John to his label. Kanye West told John that he sounded like some of the music legends, and with that ‘John Legend’ was born.

Rise to Prominence

Produced by West, will.i.am and others, John’s debut album “Get Lifted” came out in December 2004, and topped the charts, eventually achieving double platinum status, and winning the 2006 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album and several other prestigious awards, becoming an instant star. In the next couple of years, he collaborated with a number of musicians, including Stephen Colbert, Mary J. Blige, and even worked closely with Jay Z.

Encouraged by his initial success, he immediately started working on his second album “Once Again”, which also topped the US R&B chart, but this one achieved only platinum status. His next album “Evolver” came out two years later, and repeated the chart success of the previous releases, but commercially achieved only gold status. He made a break from making new music and toured extensively, while he also faced some troubles in his career, such as the lawsuit for copyright infringement by Anthony Stokes. The lawsuit referred to the song “Maxine’s Interlude”, which can be found on John’s “Once Again” album, and Stokes claimed that he had the same song but with the different title “Where Are You Now”. The lawsuit was eventually settled out of the court.

Continual Success

John returned to the studio in 2013 and released his fourth studio album – “Love in the Future” – and though it failed to top the charts, it spawned the eponymous hit “All of Me”, which is by far John’s most successful composition. Written for his then girlfriend and now wife, the song was played at their wedding as a wedding dance. Since then, he has released one more album – “Darkness and Light” – which is John’s least successful album to date.

2[on Frank Ocean] You talk to some people in this business and you get the sense that they're very focused on radio: what will be a hit or won't be a hit. You never get that from Frank. The focus is on creating something that's beautiful, that's great art...I think Frank's career will be defined by his fearlessness and his artistic freedom.

3He and his wife Chrissy Teigen are expecting a 1st child together.
4Received and turned down offers from Harvard and Georgetown, when he was 16.
5On the TV show, Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (2012), John found out some very interesting things about one of his ancestors. One of his ancestors was named Peyton Polly, who was born a slave in 1797. In 1847, he, his brother and son were set free by their master. Several years later, 7 of Peyton's other children were put up for auction and his brother Douglas Polly bought them. They moved from Kentucky (a slave state) to Ohio, where they could be free. In June of 1850, though, some men from Kentucky came into Ohio, knocked Peyton out and took the Polly children to Kentucky. Some of the children remained enslaved in Kentucky while others were enslaved in Virginia. Eight months after the kidnapping, Peyton went to the authorities and the case went to the Governor, who sent investigators into Kentucky and Virginia to get the Polly children. The children enslaved in Kentucky remained enslaved until the end of the Civil War, but the ones enslaved in Virginia were set free. After the show two of John's cousins (descendants of Peyton Polly) filed a court case to set the record straight. John's cousins found out that the reason why the Polly children were auctioned off was because of their master's debts, and his wife wanted him to get rid of them. His brother-in-law did not like this and forged a document saying that they were fugitive slaves. He tried to claim ownership of the family using the legal system in Ohio, but was denied, leading to the raid in June of 1850 on the Polly house.
