John Legend was born as John Roger Stephens. I think the last name Legend suits him because he is a legend.
He has worked with other legends, too. He worked with Kanye West (“All of the Lights”) and Jay Z (“Encore”).
Legend’s song “Glory” won an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Another song called “All of Me” is very popular, maybe as popular as “Sound of Silence.” “All of Me” is one of my favorite songs. It’s soft rock. It could put you to sleep or break somebody’s heart apart like a twig. It makes me happy, though. I just enjoy it. He had to work very hard to get it right.
Legend has a fantastic voice, like a voice from Heaven. I find it to be very inspiring.
