Full Bio

Nine-time Grammy award-winning R&B artist John Legend and the “All of Me” crooner has earned millions of fans with his chart-topping albums, has collaborated and written best-selling recordings for artists such as Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Jay Z, and Kanye West and has embarked on worldwide tours. Legend recently won a Golden Globe award and was nominated for an Oscar for the song “Glory” that he wrote with the musical artist Common for the film “Selma.”

Although he is primarily known for his musical talents, Legend has contributed his passions and ambition to benefit the lives of others. His song “Show Me” became the inspiration for the Show Me Campaign  he launched in 2007 that aims to break the cycle of poverty by striving to inspire society to take action and provide children with a quality education.

In addition, he is also a member of the board of directors of Pop Tech, a network that uses research to adopt new initiatives and encourage diverse new projects and ideas.

Legend’s humanitarian efforts have earned him numerous awards, including 2012 BET Humanitarian of the Year Award, the 2009 CARE Humanitarian Award for Global Change, the 2009 Bishop John T. Walker Distinguished Humanitarian Service Award from Africare, and the 2012 Harvard Foundation Artist of the Year Award.

He is the national spokesperson for the Management Leadership for Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization equipping minority business leaders with the keys to success. Furthermore, he has partnered with Samsung to support educational outlets with a special focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields.

Legend’s advocacy for education, along with his many accomplishments, landed him a spot in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People.
