John Legend Says There’s More Music to Come!
After winning the sexiest man alive title last year, the news has come out that soon, John Legend’s music will come out. The Voice judge announced the news in a tweet.
According to the poet, J. Ivy, John Legend’s music sounds like ‘one of the legends’.
His birth name is John Roger Stephens. At a chance meeting, the poet declared his music to have an old-school sound. It was him who first started calling him John Legend. After that, he officially changed his stage name to John Legend. At the age of four, John Legend started performing at his church choir and learned to play the piano at seven. In 2004, he released his debut album, ‘Get Lifted’, which featured Kanye West, Dave Tozer and will.i.am. After that, there was no going back for John Legend. His second album, ‘Once Again’, was successful commercially and reached number three on Billboard 200.
